Chemotherapy can be terrible. It's sometimes said that if the cancer doesn't kill you, the chemo may.
Each person reacts to chemo in a different way.
Some bear up well showing little sign of the assault.
Others suffer agonisingly. Each drop of the chemo drug entering the vein acting as soldiers fighting each cancer cell within the body.
It can be a long and weary battle not only for the patient but the care givers too.
A battle where there is no respite, no cease fire. Where each dawn brings with it a new declaration of war. Where each sunset does not bring with it a guarantee of arms laid down for the night.
A battle fought... to death.
