So Many Delightful Recipes

Rated 5 out of 5
February 28, 2022

I so love all the recipes shared by AICR! I have CLL and have been following an anti-cancer diet since being diagnosed in 2016. I am finding many of the cancer-fighting foods are helping me to keep the side effects of the CLL treatment at a mild-to-moderate level. So grateful for all you do to help those with cancer.
