Help us keep Cooking for Chemo FREE. Help us support cancer patients who are going through the most vulnerable part of their life. Our goal is to keep Cooking for Chemo digital classes FREE, online resources FREE, and continue to create new recipes, resources, and podcasts. We ask this in the hope that we can help as many people as possible, especially those who can't afford to pay for our information. If everyone who visited our website donated as little as $1, we could fully fund Cooking for Chemo every month. In the spirit of generosity, we ask you to Pay What You Can for our resources and help support Cooking for Chemo. Thank you for your direct help and support!
Food doesn’t have to taste disgusting!
Cancer patients stop eating during chemo treatments because food is no longer enjoyable.
Who wants to eat food that tastes bad? The answer is NO ONE! During chemotherapy, food begins to taste disgusting, smell terrible, and can hurt when we eat it. All these factors combined create a horrible eating experience. Over time, this causes us to become discouraged and avoid eating all together.
As a cancer supporter, our mission is to teach you HOW to adjust your cooking so your food no longer tastes disgusting! We teach common sense, practical, and easy to use cooking techniques that help you enjoy eating again. Our easy to understand cooking techniques help cancer fighters take one more bite of food to fight off starvation. Our goal is to help you take back a part of your life that cancer has taken away… the simple enjoyment of eating good tasting food.
