The Cancer Side Effects Helper was created by PearlPoint Cancer Support, a national nonprofit organization, to help survivors understand and minimize the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. This free mobile app offers trusted nutrition guidance and practical tips to help survivors feel better, maintain their strength, and speed their recovery from common cancer side effects including:
•Change in Taste and Smell
•Feeling Full Quickly
•Gas and Bloating
•Loss of Appetite
•Sore Mouth, Throat, and Tongue
With the Cancer Side Effects Helper, survivors can select applicable side effects and view quick and easy suggestions from PearlPoint’s oncology registered dietitians. The app also includes access to PearlPoint’s online resource, My PearlPoint, for more extensive cancer support including educational articles and videos, clinical trial information, nutrition guidelines, and resources for practical, financial, and emotional questions.
