To establish an online resource supported by cancer patients, for cancer patients, in order to promote plant-based recipes for living life with cancer.
Create a worldwide network to connect and support those living with cancer or caring for someone with cancer.
Cancer Bites is founded on the promotion of R.E.S.P.E.C.T. We operate under the following values:
Resourcefulness – the ability and creativity to do the best with what you have available (be that food, time, or energy)
Encouragement – continuously provide support, confidence, and hope
Support – giving assistance to others and spreading comfort
Positivity – having a good effect on others, especially when times are tough
Education – sharing information with others to provide comfort, ease, and knowledge
Community – building a fellowship of supporters without borders
Trust – believing that this online community is reliable, honest, and effective
The internet is filled with resources from experts and hundreds of recipes for cancer patients – why add more?
It’s true, there is no shortage of information available. However, there can be a gap in the voice of the experts from the voice of those living with cancer every day.
This online community is created not to substitute the wonderful information and recipes that are already available. It is created to complement and enhance existing information with the unique perspective and experience of those living with cancer or providing their care.
Cancer Bites was established for cancer patients and caregivers to answer one simple question:
What works for you?
Whether it be sharing the food that brought you the most comfort during chemotherapy, or a morning stretch that helps you start the day. Your “recipes” for living with cancer could help others!
Cancer Bites focuses on plant-based recipes to help others incorporate more nutrients and whole foods into their meals. No matter if you are looking for a “no meat Monday” dish or follow a strict whole foods plant-based diet, we have something for everyone!
The main driver for creating Cancer Bites has always and will continue to be promoting an online resource FOR cancer patients, BY cancer patients … and the caregivers that support them. Join us in building a community to connect and share with others.
You may notice our logo is accented with a lavender ribbon – why lavender?
The lavender ribbon is a symbol for general cancer awareness. It is our way of promoting awareness for all cancer types and represents a variety of cancers that anyone may have that visits our site.
