Mansi Mehta (Oncohappy) was honored with the Angel Communicators Award of the Public Relations Council of India, at the Raj Bhavan, Mumbai. Presented by the governor of Maharashtra, Bhagat Singh Koshyari, the award served as a token of appreciation for people who have made remarkable contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During times of COVID, many cancer patients who came to Mumbai for treatment were stranded on the streets, when cities started to close borders. Team OncoHappy stepped in to provide food, shelter, and transport to patients who were suddenly homeless. In addition, their on-ground patient counsellors and frontline workers put in relentless hours at hospitals to make a patient’s journey easier, better, happier.
