The diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, at any stage, can create challenges in a patient’s diet and change nutritional needs. But healthy eating and getting good nutrition on an ongoing basis are an important part of the overall management of cancer.

That’s why Celgene has teamed up with a panel of experts in developing a nutritional program during this holiday season, including nationally recognized culinary expert Chef Michael Ferraro; Jessica Iannotta, RD, CSO, a registered oncology dietitian with Meals to Heal; and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Cooking. Comfort. Care. Nourishment for the Pancreatic Cancer Fight is an education and awareness program.  It highlights the unique nutritional needs faced by people living with pancreatic cancer and provides strategies for the patient or caregiver to help address those needs.
