Danielle Cook’s son was only 11 years old when he was diagnosed with stage three Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer that affects the immune system.
“There was a huge sense of powerlessness and great sadness,” remembers Cook, a mother of three who worked for years doing cooking demonstrations in the Washington, D.C., area.
After months of making special recipes for her son who felt sick with little appetite, she saw the boy go from a “worn, depressed, tired kid to a healthy adolescent,” she says.
Cook also published a cookbook, aptly named “Happily Hungry: Smart Recipes For Kids With Cancer,” which is full of nutritional tips, helpful photos and kid-friendly recipes—a “roadmap for healthy eating choices during cancer.”
