Nutrition Updates on the Way

In the coming months, one of the Foundation’s “Big Hearts” Chef Hans Rueffert, of Georgia’s famed Woodbridge Inn, will be sharing his experience and expertise through monthly features on better nutrition for stomach cancer patients. Look for his entertaining short videos.

In summer 2005, two weeks after taping the finale for the Next Food Network Star, Rueffert was diagnosed with stomach cancer. He ended up having half of his stomach and half of his esophagus removed.
MD Anderson Cancer Center recently profiled how Hans is savoring life after stomach cancer. “Having been told three times now that I might not have a tomorrow, today I genuinely eat like there’s no tomorrow.”
Today he is cancer free and enjoys food as much as ever, and is very excited to share his insights in coming issues. 

Hearts Big Enough to Help
