At Culinary Care, they’re on a mission to ensure no one fighting cancer ever has to struggle to get the nourishment they need to survive. To them, it’s all about taking one thing off their plate by simply putting something on it. As the only organization dedicated to ensuring no one fighting cancer worries about their next meal, they’re part of a much larger fight — the fight against malnutrition. With every meal, they aim to reduce these startling statistics:
- 80% Of cancer patients experience some form of malnutrition
- 1 in 5 cancer deaths are a direct result of malnutrition, not the malignancy of cancer
- 1.6 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer each year.
