More from this Series

Cancer-the word itself is enough to stir fear in many people. But some fear the treatments for cancer almost as much as the disease. While chemotherapy is perceived by many as a necessary evil-there is strong evidence that it can help to shrink tumors and in some cases cure cancer. The treatments work but these therapies can cause severe side effects known as cancer toxicity. But as viewers will see in this program there are supportive therapies that can make cancer toxicity much more tolerable today. We'll also find out why chemotherapy causes some of its most well-known side effects; like nausea, vomiting, cognitive issues and fatigue. Plus we'll hear about what patients can do to manage these side effects and stay with the treatments that may ultimately save their lives.
