Chemo Life Solution

Cheryl SchoonmakerHi, my name is Cheryl. I have metastatic cancer and live on chemotherapy. I am constantly looking for better solutions to soften the chemo side effects without compromising the chemo. There are many types of chemo used for many types of cancer. Some are stronger than others and /or they are administered in stronger doses. Some patients require many types of chemotherapies to cure one or more types of cancer. I have had several types of chemo on my journey and my doctors are adding more. So I would like to share the solutions that have helped me through the tough days. I will update frequently, so please do come back and check the site out again.
