Nutrition with Head and Neck Cancer
Many people undergoing treatment for cancer face challenges with eating and nutrition, but people facing head and neck cancer and its related treatments face some of the most daunting ones because of the location of their cancer. According to a recent study, up to 80% of patients with head and neck cancers are malnourished, some prior to even starting treatment because their tumors cause eating problems. Our guests share their experiences, insights and knowledge so that you can make the best, most informed decisions for you and your loved ones. We are joined by Jean Johnson who was diagnosed with Stage 4 laryngeal cancer, Dr. Everett Vokes, an international authority on the treatment of head and neck cancer, and Jill Bice, a Registered Dietitian at the University of Chicago Medicine with specialty certifications in both Oncology Nutrition and Nutrition Support.
