Hi, I have head and neck cancer and have had the radiation, chemo,and neck dicession, I have no taste of any kind of food, BUT, the aroma of the food helps me eat it and keeps me from losing weight. I also drink ensure, and eat a lot of small meals throught out the day. Please tell your husband to keep a positive attitude,and to EAT, keep from losing weight.Good Luck and GOD BLESS, Joe T
