Cancer is a complex disease that can start in any part of your body and spread elsewhere.

Family history of cancer

"Chemotherapy Has Come a Long Way", & keeping an open mind is critical.


Chemotherapy has been one of the most frequently used and successful treatments for

cancer since it emerged as a routine cancer treatment in the 1950’s and 60’s.


There are more than 100 types of chemotherapy, which we customize for different types of cancers.

Unfortunately, chemo suffers from a bad reputation. Many people fear it.


The truth is, chemo has come a long way.

It really does work and most of the time,

we can effectively address many of the

side effects. In just the past two years, the improvement has been amazing. There

are people who carry on their normal lives through treatment without any appreciable side effects.
