We are with you every step of the way.
Between scheduled appointments for chemo and radiation, many patients feel that they are left on their own. You know how it feels. With an overload of information on the web and side effects that can change day-to-day, getting through your treatment plan can feel overwhelming. Care4ward is here to help.
Our personalized medical nutrition guidance program is delivered via telemedicine and it begins with a discussion of your diagnosis along with your unique and specific circumstances.
Our Oncology Dietitians work with you throughout the duration of your chemo or radiation therapy to design a plan specifically tailored for you, your diagnosis, your food preferences and your special needs. Then they monitor your progress on a regular basis and adapt the plan as your needs change during treatment.
