Be the Boss Over Cancer


I am happy to announce that I recently started cooking for a cancer patient with throat cancer.  I enjoyed the challenge of creating a yummy menu that was nutritious and took into consideration his textural needs.  I was wondering if there was an organization that did home deliveries for cancer patients?  I am interesting in doing more of this work.  It fills my heart with joy.

I have a BS in nutrition and have worked as a free lancer for a number of years in many other home visit capacities.  I realize this site is set up to address the needs of cancer patients.  I hope you might be able to set me in the right direction.

    Hi Esme,

    That's wonderful! I know that there are many local Meals On Wheels ( that deliver meals to cancer patients. Your local American Cancer Society branch should also have a list of organizations in the area that provide similar services.

    Based on your background and recent experience, I think you might find the organization Cook for Your Life ( interesting. They teach healthy cooking to people touched by cancer.
