“Cook for Your Life was a safe haven of information and delicious recipes for me and my family following my diagnosis of leukemia at age 22. There are many things that lie outside of your control when you’re diagnosed with cancer but Cook for Your Life taught me how to take charge of my health in the kitchen.”

“As an oncology dietitian, I often refer my patients to the Cook For Your Life website for recipes. I love that the recipes can be searched by specific health considerations, for example ‘high protein’ or ‘high fiber’. And what’s great is, the recipes follow recommendations for cancer nutrition for survivorship, prevention, and during treatment.”

“I use this website multiple times a day, ever since my mother came home from surgery and now as we begin her chemo regimen. I truly believe your nutritious and delicious recipes helped to make my mom feel better as she was recovering from surgery and gave her the nutrients she needed to speed the process along. I am no cook at all but thanks to you folks, I am learning at a fast pace how to make sure my mother gets the proper nutrition. The ease of your website, (at no cost no less!) makes it even better. I can’t thank you all enough for being there for us. I want to give you all a big Internet *HUG*”

“There is nothing like Cook for Your Life. What has attracted me, and has continued to keep me as a supporter, is that Ann has actually been on the journey as a cancer patient and survivor. That connection and that experience that she’s had, and how she’s using that for good and a positive, not only for herself but for her community — I just think that is outstanding. Creating a different relationship with food while you’re going through cancer is important. Sometimes going through treatment, food is the last thing you want to think about, but Cook for Your Life has a variety of recipes for every palate — it’s wonderful. “

“I happened to be getting treated for my leukemia and the nutritionist told me that one of the references that I could use was Cook for Your Life. If I had to sum it up in one word or one thought that goes through the book, through the website, through all of our lives — that’s nourishment. Thinking about all aspects of our lives is just as important as what kind of chemotherapy agents we get. You need to be nourished in your mind and in your body and I feel that that’s what I’ve gotten most out of this.”
