Quite often, cancer patients find it difficult to eat meat – it tastes too strange, or the texture is off-putting – but they need a protein rich diet to stay healthy during chemo or radiation treatment. Vegetarian options may prove the answer.
Here’s some fresh help for cancer patients, caregivers, friends, family and loved ones: Top 10 Books About Eating Well During Cancer Treatment. It can be very difficult and frustrating to maintain a nutritious diet when undergoing cancer treatment. This selection of cookbooks contains not only recipes, but vital nutritional information and suggestions to help make your life a little easier. Any one of these would make an excellent gift.

You know, I could smack myself. Sometimes, you create something and after it’s done, you suddenly have a brain wave. The front of the card should have said, “I love you with OWL my heart.” *forehead slap* Oh, well. I can always make a different owl on a different card. No idea is ever wasted!
In the meantime, it’s still a super sweet design from Every Little Thing. The inner verse reads: “Cancer can change your body, but not the fabulous person you are! Tell me what I can do to help…I’m waiting.”
This very sweet design comes from Every Little Thing (which I admit is my own store, newly opened, to showcase certain designs of mine).
The inside verse reads: “I heard you needed a great big hug! Call me – tell me what you need. I’m there for you.”
Cancer patients need encouragement and support. Having lost some of my own loved ones to cancer (mom, dad, older brother), I’m all too aware of the need to stay connected when every day is a gift.
Greeting cards can be literal lifelines to patients feeling cut off from the rest of the world because of their illness. The cards I’m designing are colorful, cheerful and sweet, with positive, heartwarming messages. Add your own words, too – nothing’s more special than a note from someone you love.
