Nutrition has always been an important thing for everyone to work on throughout our life. But for Cancer Patients this is the utmost important aspect which needs to be addressed and taken care of. As you prepare for cancer treatments, you want to focus on getting more nutrients into your body than ever before.

At Mumbai Smiles, we’ve joined the global fight to beat cancer through our project HOPE: Care for Children with Cancer. This project provides underprivileged child cancer patients and their families with various forms of support — from financial to psychological — to help them cope with, and beat cancer.  On occasion of observing World Health Day with the children suffering from Cancer, we have organized a Nutritional Talk by expert Dieticians from Holy Spirit Hospital; Ms. Minal Yadav, Dr. Neelam Kulkarni, Ms. Sai Kumbhar and Ms. Jennifer D’souza for the patients and families conducted at Holy Spirit Hospital, Andheri East, and Mumbai.

The reason is to help with the rehabilitation and preventing other problems. Focusing on good nutrition before and after cancer treatments will ensure the body stays strong, recovers quickly and doesn’t endure any other problems. Cancer is hard enough on the body, even more for children due to low immunity. Various types of cancer will result in different treatments and different side effects. With the right changes in the diet of these children, we can help to compensate for these. This will provide them with a better quality of life and they don’t have to deal with so many of the side effects.
Along with this, we have also shared articles, information booklet on Nutrition to the patients and their relatives which were provided by Cancer Patient Aid Association (CPAA). A special thanks to CPAA for their contribution.
