Managing the Side Effects of Chemotherapy

Most people are aware of the widely known and visible side effects of chemotherapy like hair loss and nausea. There are also common but less visible side effects of chemotherapy. Febrile neutropenia (FN) is a serious side effect of chemotherapy for breast and other cancers.

Watch this short video to learn more about managing the side effects of chemotherapy.

The spring 2016 edition of Network News is now available online!

Inside you’ll find many supportive articles on topics such as telling your child you have breast cancer, caring for our caregivers, depression and anxiety, and hypnotherapy.

You'll also learn about inflammatory breast cancer from a patient with this rare form of the disease.

We hope that these articles will make your life as a breast cancer patient or survivor a little easier with the knowledge that we at CBCN and the wider breast cancer community fully support you in your cancer journey.
