Story

Sandhya Yadav, a housewife in Bihar and now a proud member of the OncoHappy family was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer on 20 February 2020. Accompanied by her husband and a 3-year-old child, she came to Mumbai for treatment. Not knowing where to live, they somehow found shelter over their head through subsidized accommodation. A year into treatment, her husband lost his job, and they have drained off all their finances. Due to her financial constraints, it was very difficult for her to manage her treatment, accommodation, basic food essentials, and palliative care expenses especially given the Corona pandemic. They were barely able to manage to get milk at their own expense. The accommodation center provided basic groceries, but that did not help her get the right nutrition to build her immunity. 
This is when she came to know about Oncohappy and signed up for our initiative #momishappy, which focused on nutrition for cancer patients. Our monthly nutrition hamper provides her the required energy & immunity for her cancer treatment. It also takes the burden of the additional expense off the family and is, therefore, able to focus on maximizing the impact of nutrition. 

With an outcome-driven process focused on pre-assessment, a clear diet plan, monthly tracking, and Post assessment, we are committed to improving a cancer patient’s life holistically. We strongly believe inequitable access to information and healthcare facilities and work every day so that no one has to make a compromising choice.

The Adoption Process
     Like Sandhya, there are thousands of other cancer fighters in various accommodation centers who can benefit deeply from your adoption.
 Steps: 
      1. Donor Adoption: You adopt a/many patient/s for their nutrition needs for one month or more, by making a donation of INR 1000 per patient per month.
      2. Oncohappy Facilitation: OncoHappy ensures that these food hampers reach the patients through our partner accommodation centers. We assess their existing health, give them meal plans, recipes, and resources, and track their nutrition growth every month.
       3. Happy Patient: Patient is now armed with better immunity, feels more confident, more energetic, healthier, and happier. We share quarterly updates on their health progress through our process.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
Over 1300 Indians die daily due to cancer according to the ICMR, and the ongoing pandemic has left many patients stranded and in a precarious position.
We, at Oncohappy, have seen patients respond better to treatment when given additional boosts on nutrition, mental health, and physical fitness. Their recovery time reduces and their overall wellbeing improves significantly.  Holistic cancer care, especially nutrition is a crucial aspect in the cancer journey where a well-balanced diet can help strongly in reducing side effects, maintaining body weight, and controlling the chances of a relapse.

Join Oncohappy in our journey to improve cancer lives by providing nutritious hampers in collaboration with our registered cancer care accommodation partners and contribute significantly to the aspect of  Nutrition in Integrated Oncology.
