cancer fighting superfoods smoothie

This is a smoothie I developed for my mom who was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer on December 2015, in order to get her immune system stronger and to prevent her from loosing any more weight during the chemotherapy process . At the time of diagnosis she had been hospitalized for a month and ended up weighing only 79 lbs. and wasn't expected to survive longer than two months. She has made it against all odds to this day August 2108 and this smoothie has been key in her treatment process . It provides her with strength and energy to endure the treatments. This is the first of many recipes that will be posted in the healing segment that has helped her heal during the chemo process.  I truly hope this can be of help to other people going through the same process.
