Savor Health’s Game Plan

What’s as All American as Apple Pie?  Super Bowl Sunday of course! And once again, the celebration is here!

Savor Health is celebrating in a huge way for 2017, tackling cancer and striving for good nutrition for the game of life.  We believe the game of football is synonymous to the fight with cancer; each person striving to overcome challenges and reap all the joys of living each day to its fullest.  Because of this, Savor Health has teamed up with Hall of Famer and former Buffalo Bills quarterback, Jim Kelly, Merck, The Head and Neck Cancer Alliance and Support for People with Oral Head and Neck Cancer (SPOHNC) for a program called “Your Cancer Game Plan” designed to support the needs of head and neck cancer patients through their fight.  Your Cancer Game Plan is a comprehensive resource for the broad range of needs and issues experienced by these patients and their families. The three key pillars of Your Cancer Game Plan campaign address nutrition, staying positive and communication. Also provided are recipes, coping strategies, communication guides and so much more! This is a great resource for patients, their loved ones, and their medical teams.
