Kristina has experienced the fear and anxiety surrounding a cancer diagnosis. She had a scare a few years back, and while lucky enough to not have cancer, she did watch her best friend’s father go through treatment. Seeing how difficult it was and wanting to avoid a diagnosis of her own one day, she started a journey of intense research. It took her to the offices of nutritionists and doctors, to online databases of scientific journals, and to recipe blogs written by cancer survivors. The biggest thing she learned was just how important good nutrition is, both as a preventative and as a way to get through cancer treatment.
