fighting breast cancer

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer that moved to her bones, 3 months ago. She couldn't walk for a long time as the cancer cells literally ate parts of her bones. She must intake extra calcium on top of her diet.


I was wondering if anybody could send me some recipes, or post them here, that are good when fighting cancer? Please?

Note: the diet has to be low-fat and low-sugar. Any ideas? I need to cook something for my mommy that fits in these standards.


Thank you,

Okay here's a Vegetable Soup that would be good to make when fighting cancer and is healthy for anyone.

Mixed Vegetable Soup

Mind your mother: Mom was right. Eat your vegetables. Studies show 90 percent of cancers could have been prevented through nutrition and lifestyle changes. A diet rich in vegetables has been shown to reduce the risk of breast, prostate, bladder and ovarian cancers.

Serves 4-6
2 tsps extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp earth balance/ or margarine
2 onions, peeled and chopped
1 stalk celery, washed and chopped
1 cup carrots, peeled and sliced
1 cup winter squash or butternut squash, chopped
3/4 cup potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tomatoes, skinned and chopped
1 cup broccoli florets, stalks trimmed
1/2 cup corn, fresh or frozen
32 ozs. vegetable stock
4 1/2 ozs. plain soy milk
Handful of basil leaves, torn not chopped

Heat oil and margarine in a heavy-based saucepan and then add onions. Cook until transparent, approximately 5 minutes. Add celery, carrots, squash and potatoes. Stir for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent browning.

Add vegetable stock, cover the pan and simmer for 10 minutes until vegetables are beginning to soften. Add broccoli, corn and tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Allow to cool slightly. Pour contents into a blender or food processor and blend coarsely (for less than 1 minute), to thicken soup, but without losing colors. Add torn basil and serve.
