Building immunity organically, one cancer patient at a time....
Goal: To help 1000 cancer patients every month by providing them the required nutrition for cancer treatment eventually helping them deal better with treatment side effects.
Because: “The right nutrition has been credited with a 60–70 % decrease in breast, colorectal, and prostate cancers, and even a 40–50 % decrease in lung cancer, along with similar reductions in cancers at other sites.”
Beneficiaries: Patients touched by cancer
Impact Focus: Nutrition, Health & Wellness
Pledge 2020: Nutrition | 1000 Patients/month | 1 Year
Impact so far: 500+ patients touched by cancer.
Nutrition – what we eat and the level of care we give our bodies directly affects our health. Cancer patients struggle to maintain adequate nutrition owing to multiple reasons. Lack of adequate nutrition results in further problems for the patients making them weak and vulnerable to more side effects and infections. Both treatment and nutrition are equally crucial for a cancer patient but people with limited income can at best afford only one of it.
OncoHappy ensures that nutritious food hampers reach patients through our partner accommodation centres/ hospitals. These hampers provide grocery support for a month and gives the right nutrients that boost their immunity to fight cancer. Along with this we assess their existing health, give them meal plans, recipes, and resources, and track their nutrition growth every month.
