New Nutrition Resource for People Living with Stomach Cancer

Cancer has hit me hard. I have personally not had cancer, but the disease took Stephen – my beloved husband and father of my boys – in October, 2012. Specifically stomach cancer.

I have decided to partner with Eli Lily and Company because I want to do anything I can do to help people fighting stomach cancer and those who are caregivers for them. I am a Registered Dietitian and even I was confused as to what Stephen could eat and what foods would be best for him as he went through his fight.


This holiday season as everyone enjoys special moments with family and friends, Eli Lilly and Company is passionate about bringing everyone to the table, especially those living with stomach cancer as this disease impacts the person’s ability to maintain proper nourishment. is designed to help people living with stomach cancer maintain strength to promote healthy eating and digestion, and features easy-to-digest, nutritional takes on some holiday favorites and other specifically curated recipes.


The website is a wealth of info on everything related to eating well for someone with stomach cancer. There are recipes and the 5 Steps to guide you along the journey. You’ll find handy info on protein, sugar, produce, and oils, and even a shopping guide.


I wish I would have had such a robust resource when Stephen was fighting stomach cancer, but I am so happy that this website can help so many others now.
