Guide to Chemotherapy … a good resource

Yesterday marked 8 months of chemotherapy and treatment #16.  While at the oncologist I picked up an interesting little magazine, Guide to Chemotherapy.  It’s published by Health Monitor.

The magazine table of contents for Guide to Chemotherapy includes:

  • Get back to the life you love – Chemo is your bridge to the future
  • Top questions about chemo
  • Staying the course – Adhering to your treatment schedule can get you the best results from chemo
  • Understanding your blood counts
  • The side effects you must know about
  • Conquering chemo anxiety – Overcome anxiety and de-stress before your first session
  • Chemo mentors – How a support group can help
  • Circle of support, chain of love – One woman’s mission to spread hope
  • Get the nutrition you need
  • Thrive during treatment – 20 tips for taking care of your body, mind and spirit
  • Don’t forget about “date nights” – How to keep the intimacy during chemo
  • Chemo and your job – Tips to make it work
  • Understanding cancerspeak – All the terms you need to know

Now if you are a cancer warrior frequently visiting to your oncologist you might want to check and see if they have some complimentary copies.

Or you can check out the website  Browse their website … while not laid out just like the magazine … all the magazine articles are on the website plus many more helpful articles.

If you are facing your first chemo treatment, if you’re an old pro at chemo, if you’re a caregiver or friend of someone with cancer – then check it out and see what you think.




About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
