Welcome to Cancer Bites
WELCOME TO YOUR PERSONAL CORNER OF THE INTERNET
Well, here we are! Cancer Bites has been a dream in the making for over four years! What started as a personal interest, grew into a passion – a fire in the belly that would not flame out.
So what took so long to launch the Cancer Bites website? It’s hard to pinpoint exactly.
Fear that it would fail, that nobody would benefit.
Imposter Syndrome and the chronic self-doubt that is felt by someone who has a passion to help those with cancer, without having experienced it myself first hand.
Perfectionism and the nagging feeling that I cannot achieve the mission of Cancer Bites without a flawless website.
Maybe you can relate? No matter.
This isn’t about me. Oh no. It is about all of YOU.
Everyone that uses this website has a story to tell.
Cancer Bites is about your experiences, your stories, and your connection to others.
This is not just about sharing food recipes – it is about sharing bites of knowledge for living life with cancer.
FILLING A NEED
Every person is unique and will experience different symptoms throughout the course of treatment and recovery. Only you know what works best for you.
What foods taste best.
What drinks quench your thirst.
Which stretches provide relief to your achy body.
But maybe, just maybe, what works for you might help and provide relief to others going through something similar.
Does that mean professional resources such as cancer cookbooks and blogs from experts aren’t valuable? Absolutely not! Of course we welcome the expertise of all to help caregivers and those living with cancer.
However, there is currently an important voice missing. YOURS.
The call to action at Cancer Bites is simple – LET’S HEAR FROM YOU.
I invite you to use any and all tools available on this website to connect and share with others.
Share your own favorite recipe through the recipe submission section. This site cannot develop and grow without you! But if you’re too shy to share at first, take a look through the recipes submitted by others. If you like something, give it a quick rating or leave a comment. It may just bring a smile to someone’s face.
Use the site as a forum to connect with others. Want a live forum for discussions? Let me know!
Check out the blog for relevant tips, articles, and resources. If you want more information on a certain topic then let me know! This is your site and I want it to be as valuable to you as possible.
As we go-live with this new resource, I want to say thank you.
Thank you for stopping by, for sharing your recipes, for posting a new forum topic, and for every blog post share.
You control what the future holds for Cancer Bites.
This is for you. A website for cancer patients, by cancer patients.
Please always make your voice heard and let me know how Cancer Bites can continue to grow, support, and serve you moving forward!
