. Many of our volunteers have personal connections with cancer and know how hard it can be to deal with the disease.
Our name, Med Pact, stands for Meals Delivered to Patients in Cancer Treatment. It is our pact to help patients and their families in some way, and we hope that our meals will achieve this. The inspiration for this program came from a CNN article that highlighted the issues of cooking while undergoing cancer treatment. After reading about the struggles of cancer treatment, specifically related to cooking, we decided to help these people. We would like to be one part of the effort to make the treatment of cancer more manageable.
What to Eat During Cancer Treatment, from the American Cancer Society, we will provide meals that are friendly for the common symptoms of nausea, diarrhea, constipation, sore mouth and difficulty swallowing, taste alterations, and/or unintentional weight loss.
Med Pact is brought to you through Thomas Jefferson University's Gross Learning Society and through the Schweitzer Fellowship
