Dana-Farber Cancer Institute created the Ask The Nutritionist: Recipes for Fighting Cancer app to help you find recipes for staying healthy, getting you through treatment, and living and eating healthy for the rest of your life.

The app was developed by a staff of registered and board-certified dieticians and designed to help find the optimal diet for any type of cancer. It also offers users the ability to search by common symptoms (such as nausea or mouth sores), helping to customize dietary needs while going through treatment.
