This website, the first of its kind in Canada, is designed to help you play a more active role in your cancer treatment. Nourish wants to help you take care of yourself by eating well, and by managing some of the common side effects of cancer and its treatment.

When so many things seem out of control, your nutritional choices can play a key role in your treatment and recovery. Whether or not you have side effects, eating well is essential when dealing with cancer.

Research shows that patients who are able to maintain a healthy weight during cancer treatment respond better to therapy, recover faster and have a better quality of life.
