Cook for Your Life
A beautiful, unique cookbook with delicious recipes for all stages of cancer treatment and recovery, from a two-time cancer survivor and founder of the Cook for Your Life nutrition-based cooking programs.
Chef, Author and Guide
Ann has “been there, done that” when it comes to cancer. She is a survivor of both kidney cancer and triple negative breast cancer. And now as a Guide, she’ll be sharing her joinery, her insights and her know how when it cancer, health and wellness.
We asked each of our Guides to share three ways that cancer has changed their lives. Ann talks about how cancer became a liberating experience.
Ann’s second cancer diagnosis caused her to dig deep and reassess things, leading to new perspectives on work and life.
In changing careers, Ann re-crafted an entirely new life for herself.
