Program Description

Cuddles foundation through this program works underprivileged children suffering from cancer with focus on providing them holistic nutrition.

Close to 80% of children afflicted with cancer come from underprivileged backgrounds, and are malnourished at the time of diagnosis. Without nutrition the body cannot absorb the after-effects of chemotherapy and this leads to dropping out of treatment. If the child is underweight appropriate dosage of chemotherapy cannot be administered.

Food Heals Cancer

When children are well-nourished the side-effects such as nausea, vomiting etc are reduced and they can tolerate the cancer treatment. This helps them get better as quickly as possible.

A Cuddles nutritionist plans a diet based on the child’s malnourishment level and his medical condition. The holistic nutrition program includes a customized diet plan to ensure appropriate nutrition.

Every child gets customized diet planning and counselling as well nutritional supplements like protein powder and feeding tubes all free of cost.

When you donate to this program you will help a child fight cancer with food.
