The Day That Changed My Life - Chemotherpay What To Expect?

Once the diagnosis has been given, the next phase is to begin the treatment process. Dr. Eric Mayer of Dana Farber Brigham and Women's Cancer Center discusses the chemotherapy treatment plan, the side effects and the details of what one may experience during the treatment. It's a delicate process and meeting with a team who walks you through the steps of treatment is essential.

The chemotherapy is quite common. However, there are options available. Some prefer to wear a wig, hat, scarf or nothing at all. We have also included some wonderful videos that may be helpful. Kelley Tuthill is a television reporter and a breast cancer survivor who was treated at Dana- Farber. She graciously shares her tips for headscarf tying and selecting wigs which will add to a really great look.

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
