    Hi, I'm sorry to hear that you have cancer. Glad to hear that you are going to fight it with everything at your disposal.
    I found a site that has a listing of cancer fighters... looks like nuts are WAY up there.
    Anyhow here's the link to the list
    http://www.cancure.org/cancer_fighting_foods.htm

    In trying to find recipes I think , since most whole food diets are the best fighters of multitudes of diseases, you may want to look at these Paleo diet blog sites and use the initial list as a guide for looking up recipes to use those ingredients.

    hope these help you and I truly wish you the best of luck.

    I would think that foods that help prevent would also be musts in fighting.

    I found this WebMD slideshow that has great images -- http://www.webmd.com/cancer/ss/slideshow-cancer-fighting-foods.

    Have you asked your oncologist if there is a dietician on staff that you can work with? I think many cancer centers have them to help take a well-rounded approach to treatment.

    I'd be interested to know what your doctor and dietician have to say. Can you come back and share?
