Helping Yourself Through Cancer Treatment

Posted by: Living With Cancer Guest Blogger on Apr 21, 2016 in Support, Treatment

The following post is written by Robin Maggio, oncology social worker with Woman’s Hospital.

Reminding yourself that you control the cancer and the cancer does not control you is a big step in the road toward cancer recovery. And developing a plan for how to prepare for your cancer treatment is a great way to help yourself.

The first thing to be sure of before you start your cancer treatment is that you are physically ready for chemotherapy or radiation. You need to give your body enough time to itself after surgery so that the treatment will not have too many damaging side effects.
