Cancer and its related treatments put a stress on the body that often increases its nutritional needs. At the same time, it may make eating more difficult, causing weight loss and fatigue. Without the nutrients required to fight disease, rebuild tissue, and boost the immune system, cancer takes a big toll on the body and decrease the effectiveness of treatments.
The Oncology Nutrition Clinic at the Stephenson Cancer Center is a complimentary service provided to our patients. A registered dietitian is available to help you with any questions and concerns about your diet and other eating issues you may experience during your cancer treatment
