What is Chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy (sometimes called chemo) uses drugs to eliminate cancer cells and is used to treat many types of cancer. Chemotherapy works best on cells that are actively growing and dividing. Cancer cells tend to grow and divide quickly so this makes them good targets for chemotherapy. We also use immunotherapy treatments to help your immune system find cancer cells. It works by targeting cancer cells directly and boosting your immune system to help fight the cancer.
