"Your going to need chemotherapy." After getting your cancer diagnosis, I can't think of a much more frightening piece of news. While neither I nor any of my loved ones have had cancer [knock on wood], I've worked around cancer in one way or another for most of the last 10 years.
What I've learned is that chemo is, or at least has been, a poison that basically kills the tumor faster than it kills the patient, but that, if successful, gives life.
A gross oversimplification? Perhaps. Which is why I want to write a book that tells the story of chemo, to understand where it comes from, where it's going, what we've done with it...and what it's done with us.
