Family support The September issue of HFG was perfectly timed for me. After receiving the sad news of a family member’s cancer diagnosis, I didn’t have to search far and wide for the information I needed. I simply picked up the latest issue of my favourite magazine and found exactly what I was looking for. I’ve since purchased a second copy of the magazine and have posted it to other family members with a few notations, so we can all support one another as best as possible.

letter of the month

Priceless practical tips I’m writing to let you know how much I appreciated your fantastic article, ‘How to eat well during cancer treatment.’ I’m recovering from breast cancer, having gone through five months of gruelling chemotherapy. I identified with six of the common side effects of treatment mentioned, and wish I’d had the solutions you describe earlier, but better late than never! Your suggestions are concise and informative, and particularly useful when pain is involved in cancer treatment. The article is an invaluable resource for both patient and family/carer when planning meals, as the patient can describe their side-effect symptoms and food can be adjusted accordingly. The September 2021 issue of HFG magazine is definitely a keeper! Maria Birse, SA…
