      This could be a Blessing in Disguising.
      Get Healthy with Raw Foods, Juicing and Anti Cancer Supplements.
      Geekling is right.
      I always recommend the book THE CHINA STUDY by a PHD in Nutrition about Flesh Foods and Cancer....also check out the wonderful site below AND his great facebook page.

      What did they say when they told you the platelets are too low? Didn't they tell you how to get them higher? Good foods, and transfusions as Freebird says. This is not uncommon, they take your blood work every time you go for chemo treatments, and if it is too low they will not give you chemo. Good luck to you...

      I think they wait awhile until platelet count back up then start again
