Celebrity chef Curtis Stone was in the Quad Cities Friday telling Iowans that a good diet can help fight cancer.
The author and TV personality took a tour of the Genesis Medical Center’s “Cancer Care Institute” and even prepared lunch for one of the patients receiving treatment.
The visit was to raise money for Gilda’s Club in the Quad Cities, a resource center for cancer patients and their families.
The hospital is promoting what it calls “patient-centered” cancer care.
Curtis told the audience, “Basically, the way your body looks and feels is down to those two things; what you put into it, and what you make it do. Whether it’s eating right or getting a lot of exercise. It makes you stronger and fitter and healthier. It’s a really simple thing, sometimes we complicate it, we go down the road of too many processed foods, or we go down the road of being too sedentary. But it’s actually an easy thing to stay healthy.”
The hospital also hosted a luncheon with chef Stone.
