Special note from recipe creator, Terri Hudak:

“This concoction I created has been a lifesaver for my husband. He has HPV Throat Cancer and it has been challenging to say the least to ensure he has all the necessary vitamins AND making sure the shake actually tastes good. There is only so much Ensure and Boost a person can drink at this point and I can assure you that the shake I created is even better than the above. As everyone knows, the fear of getting a feeding tube is scary so I have added items to make sure there are plenty of calories.”

Kristi believes dentists can be a resource for early detection by conducting a thorough mouth, jaw, and throat examination upon every visit. “While the dentists couldn’t have prevented cancer, they possibly could have been a great resource for early detection. This could have saved my husband from going through such grueling treatments.”Kristi Mason
