Guest OncoLink Blog -Why does food taste bad?
An Excerpt: In my last blog post, I defined what your senses are and how they come into play during the eating experience. As a refresher, I showed that you experience food with all five of your senses.(Taste, Touch, Sight, Smell and Sound), and that all of that information is filtered through your memories and associations to help decide how you feel about the food that you are eating. Today, I am going to teach you a little more about why food tastes bad to chemo patients, and a few ways to figure out precisely what it is that is putting your appetite off of its game....

Article for World Cancer Day with IHadCancer
As I sit in my booth at Wizard World ComicCon, I was trying to come up with inspiration to finish writing this blog post. I had a solid 280 word blog post written, that was good, but not great. I know what World Cancer Day means to me, but what did it mean to you, the reader? Then at the end of the day, a 17 year old girl came over dressed as a video game character and began to talk with me. We laughed, we joked, and I gave her the spheil on my new cookbook. This intrigued her and she began to color in my new book at our coloring station. As we talked we delved deeper and deeper into her life until she confided in me that she had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 12.

Interview with Gilda's Club Evansville, IN
Chef Ryan’s family was no stranger to cancer, and when his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, his life, including being a chef, took a twist as he became the primary caregiver for her for about a year. He noticed how difficult it was for her to enjoy food because of the side effects of treatment with many things smelling and tasting weird for her.
“I reached out to national organizations for tips and tricks to help,” he explained. “Even though they had informational pamphlets, no one really had any answers.”
