Who AM I?

Just who is Yvonne McClaren?

In 2018 Yvonne packed up her life, turned down an opportunity to audition for MasterChef, quit her job and relocated to Southeast Asia. The plan, to explore work in teaching hospitality, event management and food. Yvonne was following her passion to teach others using different cuisines and how to use food as medicine.

Three months later, her persistent sore throat brought her back to Australia, it was then that her life was turned upside down. Within two weeks she was being operated on for a squamous cell carcinoma (HPV Cancer) and within three weeks, not swallowing any food or water orally.

Yvonne lost a third of her tongue, a lot of weight, both tonsils, a large tumour and 30 lymph nodes. Radiation and chemotherapy followed alongside a 15 month stint with a PEG tube feeder (gastrostomy tube).

Two years post-treatment, Yvonne has oropharyngeal dysphagia & is on a mission to help motivate others around the world to transition off their feeding tube back to oral eating using real food. To stay motivated, create a new way of eating and explore what might be available for you.

I am driven to use my passion for food to help others who suffer from dysphagia and the after-effects of head and neck cancer treatment, to live a better life and one that is PEG tube free.

A Highly Valuable Resource

Yvonne’s knowledge of food, adaptability and cooking techniques have assisted her to transition from tube-feeding to a more normal diet and the lessons she learnt and the knowledge she can impart are a highly valuable resource for anyone embarking or recovering from head and neck cancer treatment.
