This book was written by Chef Ryan Callahan, a 15 year hospitality industry veteran, based on his first hand experience acting as primary caregiver for his mother while she went through cancer and chemotherapy treatments.

Anybody who has ever gone through chemotherapy, acted as a caregiver, or knows someone who has gone through chemo will admit that combating and living with the terrible eating related side-effects of chemotherapy was one of the hardest parts of going through chemotherapy. Inability to eat can not only starve you, but break your will to live, and dramatically reduce your quality of life.
