Why Savor Health?
It’s nearly impossible to find someone who hasn’t lost a loved one to cancer.
Nearly everyone undergoing treatment for cancer experiences trouble eating, yet only 20% of patients ever speak to a nutritionist. Because of the shortage of oncology nutritionists, patients who aren’t seriously ill often face 3-week long waiting lists.
Waiting too late to address nutrition can be fatal. A third of cancer deaths are from cachexia, or malnutrition that’s advanced to wasting syndrome.
Nutritional support can minimize the impact of treatment side effects, keep you and your family strong, and improve your quality of life.
Over the years I’ve lost several family members and friends to cancer. All of them experienced trouble eating. A few years ago, my dear friend Eric was diagnosed with a glioma of the brain stem. He was plagued with mouth sores and difficulty swallowing. Everything tasted wrong. No matter how tirelessly we worked, he couldn’t manage to eat enough to withstand treatment. If you’re too weak for treatment, you can’t beat cancer.
I vowed after that experience to dedicate myself to helping people with cancer and their loved ones receive access to healthy nutritious meals, safe evidence
The result of this commitment is Savor Health. We are dedicated to making your life easier and less stressful by providing answers to your questions and solutions to make sure you and your loved ones get the nutrition you need.
Since founding Savor Health, it’s been incredibly fulfilling to watch patients become survivors and help them regain their strength and thrive in their new lives. The research is out there and we’re taking it from the journals and brining it to you, to make your life better.
