Nutrition is an important component of an inclusive cancer care program. Eating the right foods before, during, and after treatment can help our patients feel better, stay stronger and mantain or improve their quality of life. With this in mind, we are now working with a pediatric nutritionist on a nutritional counseling program were our patients and their companion receive guidance on what is the right food depending on their treatment. Along with this, we have cooking workshops twice a month were mothers learn food manipulation methods.
We close 2017 with 22 new families and new computers for our computer lab.
