New to Chemotherapy?
Good nutrition is important for good health and is an essential part of your journey with cancer. Eating the right kinds of foods can help you feel better throughout your treatment process, and protect your strength and energy before, during, and after your cancer treatment.
We can help you and your loved ones learn about the value of good nutrition, your nutritional needs, and ways to cope with treatment side effects that may affect how well you can eat.
In addition, eating well while you are in treatment may help you:
- Maintain your weight and your body's store of nutrients.
- Lower your risk of infection.
- Heal and recover faster.
