Diet and Nutrition

Good nutrition is an important part of your cancer journey.

Cancer and cancer treatments may affect the way your body tolerates food and uses nutrients. Maintaining a well-balanced diet, including a variety of foods can help you feel better and stronger.

Focusing on eating well during treatment helps to maintain your body weight and muscle mass, improves strength and mobility, decreases risk for infection and promotes healing and recovery.
