Angela Russell - on chemotherapy treatment

"Chemo is not easy, because it really, uh, it really lowers your resistance to a considerable extent, because they are trying to kill off the cancer cells, a lot of other good cells are killed in the process so your immune system is really assaulted and I think the thing that probably bothered me more than anything during chemo was a lowered resistance and one really needs to be careful during that stage, that you're not in contact with people that have contagious diseases, that you're not around people who have a lot of colds and have the flu. You just gotta be a lot more cautious, and once you catch something like even a minor cold, that could be major and uh so you've really gotta take care of yourself."
