    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My first rounds of chemo made me so sick I could not function. After I changed doctors and hospitals, chemo got much easier

    cancer was spreading and treatment wasn't working

    Decision Point

    My husband and I chose to get a second opinion after my initial rounds of chemo therapy.
