Thank you so much for your support and the success of our first Hope Webinar which kicked off last month.
Our next webinar is on nutrition. It will take place Friday, September 17th. For more details and to register click HERE.
Nutrition is close to my heart. Because after my dad's total gastrectomy and year of oncology treatment he was down to just 97 lbs. And that's from his heaviest weight of 171 lbs.
Looking back, I really wish we saw a dietitian at diagnosis. This would have spared us so much heartache. Because once my dad started to lose a little weight, it quickly snowballed to a lot of weight.
Additionally, it wasn’t just the weight that concerned his team of medical experts. It was the fatigue, the vitamin-deficient neuropathy, the malnutrition, and the stomach cramping pain. All of it threatened the next steps in terms of treatment.
Proper nutrition is important to withstand oncological treatment, radiation, and even surgery. Proper nutrition helps us get the right vitamins and minerals- and fuels our body. Without it our body becomes weak and it severely limits our medical options.
So, join us on this very important Hope Webinar: Dietary Interventions for Gastric and Esophageal Cancer: Practical Tools for Patients with Nancee Jaffe, MS, RDN. This topic is extremely important to us because nutrition is everything. Literally!
Lastly, if you missed our last webinar with Dr. Daniel Catenacci, that’s okay - we have the slides and the webinar right HERE. It was an overview of gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma and the implementation of new treatments in the metastatic setting. Also, it included a focus on optimal personalization of therapy for each individual based on predictive biomarkers.
Thank you, my friends, for your continuous support and devotion.
