Nutrition Counseling

You may find it difficult to maintain healthy eating habits as you receive cancer treatments, especially if you experience loss of appetite, depression, anxiety, emotional stress, or chemical changes caused by your cancer.

The food you eat can provide your body with nutrients necessary for cellular growth, repair and maintenance. You can also prevent weight loss and malnutrition by eating the right amounts of food rich in calories, protein, vitamins, and minerals.

VOA staff can provide you with personal nutrition solutions and menu ideas to prevent additional illnesses and facilitate recovery from your disease.
