London: Jim Fisher has created a special Christmas menu for people undergoing cancer treatment who can’t enjoy a traditional meal during the holiday season.Fisher, a Master Chef semi-finalist, had nursed his late mother Sylvia as she fought a rare form of cancer.The chemotherapy used for cancer treatment can trigger debilitating side effects such as nausea and loss of appetite, and a wrecking of taste buds.Meanwhile, mouth ulcers – which occur due to the strain placed on the immune system during chemotherapy – can make it painful to eat at a time when the body most needs nutrition.Seeing his mother’s loss of appetite and inability to enjoy most foods due to inflammation of the surface of the inside of the mouth, Fisher began to research food properties and modified his mother’s old recipes.
