Project Pink’d Offers Complimentary Nutrition Program to Breast Cancer Survivors
There’s nothing more fun than a night out with the girls, great food and someone else doing the dishes-especially when you are a breast cancer survivor. In July, Project Pink’d (projectpinkd.org) offered a favorite on their survivorship program menu, Chef’s Table, to local survivors.
Attendees filled-up on nutrition information as a certified oncology nutritionist dispelled the myths of nutrition and cancer and our healthy cooking expert stirred up something special during a cooking demo and tasting party. At the end of this fun evening, participants received all the ingredients needed to make the recipe demonstrated at home.
“Project Pink’d continues to listen to our community of survivors, and nutrition is a struggle for many. The overwhelming response to our summer Chef’s Table program identified a need in the community for survivors. As a result, Project Pink’d is committed to provide the Chef’s Table programs seasonally to meet these needs. Nutrition is important for good health and learning how we can fuel our bodies in a healthy way before, during and after cancer treatment is vital to our quality of life. Every day cancer survivors are flooded with new information and some of it is fact and some is fiction. By working with local experts in our community, it is our hope survivors will gain the knowledge and tools to support a healthy life,” explained Cynthia Sturgeon, Project Pink’d founder and president.
