You will find various articles and advice regarding sugar. They will all contradict one another. Doctors have very little training on diet and nutrition do they all may say eat what you want or all the ice cream you can. Studies have shown that sugar is as addicting as drugs like cocaine and that cancer gets its energy source from sugar or glucose. All cells get their energy from glucose but cancer monopolizes the glucose in order to survive. Cancer will take over blood supplies or create its own. This is the very simplistic explanation.

As a patient, one will have to decide what's more important. Feeding your body healing foods or satisfying a sugar craving and eating things that essentially will harm the body. It doesn't mean you become obsessed with not eating sugar but you change the diet to significantly decrease the sugar intake. Everything in moderation doesn't mean sweets everyday. More healthy foods with a treat now and then. Think about a diabetic and how sugar impacts they're body without the insulin. To remain healthy they have to change the diet.

As a PC survivor I had to change everything. I will do what I can to continue to live. If that means cutting it significantly reducing it, I have committed to that. Change is hard but I rather change than be dead. I hope this helps and answers your question from a patient's perspective.
