If You’re in Treatment

If you’re currently in treatment for breast cancer, we encourage you to meet with a registered dietitian who specializes in optimizing treatment outcomes. They will work with you to find tasty foods and meals to minimize side effects and support your health. Find a plant-based dietitian who specializes in cancer on the Physicians Committee’s Find a Doctor tool or the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Find an Expert tool. (You can filter by “Cancer Nutrition” and “Vegetarian Nutrition.”)

You can also visit Pink Lotus Power Up for other great resources for breast cancer thrivers!
