In brief: Depends
Diet and exercise may be more important as prevention (eat your veggies) and for recurrence risk rather than actively treating a growing cancer. It may also depend on tumor type, where some cancers are oblivious to dietary interventions.

In brief: Doesn't exist
There is no proof that any diet can kill cancer cells.
Experimentally, diets high in antioxidants have shown some potential, and some advocate high doses of vitamin c or a vegan diet. So far, none of these have translated from animal or cell models to actual people. By all means, a good diet may help your regular cancer treatmentt, but don't expect diet to replace standard therapies.
