Chemo & Radiation
Chemotherapy is the longest part of the journey through Cancer Land, and it can be the most challenging emotionally, as well. Cancer has taken possession of her body, and so it’s chemo’s job to evict this disgusting vagrant, for good. But to do so, chemo must conduct a red bloodbath of destruction, killing good growth cells (like her hair) along with the bad, in a war of attrition to save her life. Chemo is angry, nasty, and ugly stuff, transported through her bloodstream on its death march to kill each and every cancer cell in her body.
