Kicking Cancer in the Kitchen…
Kendall and Annette are two young cancer survivors who are Kicking Cancer In The Kitchen. Not only did they survive cancer but learned to thrive with cancer — from diagnosis through intense treatment and beyond. They know what it’s like to be stopped in your tracks by what seems to be a death sentence… and they know what it’s like to wake up from the scared-shitless, post-diagnosis stupor and wonder: “What the heck do I do now?!”
However, they didn’t want to just slog their way through cancer; Kendall and Annette also wanted to feel as good as possible while doing it.
After their cancer diagnoses (and before they had even met!), Annette and Kendall decided to become their own health advocates and do all they could, alongside their doctors to heal from cancer. They adopted a “food as medicine” philosophy and began making small changes in their diets and busy lives to help in healing from the disease. Their new outlook on food and life motivated them to attend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and later to co-author their book Kicking Cancer In The Kitchen The Girlfriends Cookbook and Guide to Using Real Food to Fight Cancer.
