Before your first chemotherapy treatment, you may feel a range of emotions: anxiety, fear, or perhaps even eagerness to get started. Knowing what to expect will allow you to face the experience with greater calm and confidence. Hear from a patient in treatment, doctors, nurses and loved ones about the reality of the chemotherapy process.
Chemotherapy, often referred to simply as chemo, is the treatment of cancer with medications that can destroy cancer cells. Chemotherapy works by interfering with the way cancer cells divide, preventing the cancer from spreading and helping to get rid of cancer cells in the body.
