Welcome to the initial blog post from Meals to Heal. We hope that you find this and future posts useful. Whether you have cancer, are a caregiver, or are touched by cancer in another way, our goal is to help you and your loved ones receive better nutrition and nutrition-related information. Our blog posts cover a wide range of topics on cancer and nutrition ranging from recommendations to mitigate treatment side effects to the latest evidence
For this post I wanted to tell you the story behind Meals to Heal. The story starts ten years ago when I had my first experience with the cancer diagnosis of a dear friend. Up until this time I had not really experienced cancer first
s, mouth sores developed, and, in the end, he had difficulty swallowing. The diagnosis and treatment also resulted in nutritional issues and struggles for his entire family as they tried to cope with the illness of a family member and the related stress. Eric unfortunately lost his battle. 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 Meals to Heal.
