Nutrition - Your first line of defense.
During cancer treatment, your immune system may not work as well as it normally does. This is because cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, which are aimed at stopping fast growing cancer cells, also affect other fast growing healthy cells, such as immune cells. The good news is that immune cells recover quickly when treatment stops.
While undergoing cancer treatment, eating well helps keep your immune system working at its best.
Request to see a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist who can advise you about your nutritional needs during and after cancer treatment.
