learn about nutrition

To stop the growth of cancer, drugs are often used to kill cancerous cells or to stop the cells from dividing – this process is called chemotherapy. However, patients undergoing chemotherapy can be affected by symptoms such as loss of appetite, mucositis, fatigue, pain and fever both during and after treatment.

Good nutrition is vital to help you overcome chemotherapy side-effects, maintain an adequate diet and energy level and improve your general well-being.
