Patient Testimonials

Cooking for Cancer

Irene Cooking For Cancer Class Attendee.

“I’ve gotten a lot out of these classes. For me, cooking is stressful! My kitchen comfort level has improved because they keep it real and prepare healthy meals even I can make. Plus, Angela's nutritional tidbits inspire me to consider food never before on my grocery list - arugula, walnuts, fresh herbs, balsamic glaze - are now part of my staples.” — Irene
