    Other Care (ACS): Going thru this terrible event I contacted the ACS who informed me that they couldnt help me.. I was completely shocked to hear they give money to research and companies for cancer treatment, but nothing for patients. I was very disappointed..
    Since then I think they are doing a bit more to help patients..perhaps resulting from a letter I wrote to the Association Management.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Sitting in a bed ffor 6 hours for 4 days each left me with a terrible feeling and low white count 2 days after treatment. Nose was bleeding and blood was thin. Platlat and blood transfusions were required to save me. Chemo treatment can be very difficult and has permanent side effects... ie.. kidney failure....no hair etc.
