chemotherapy is to destroy the cancer cells. these drugs are very costly and have more side effects. my grandma had pancreatic cancer the drugs were expensive and she use to lots of hair loss, nausea and vomiting, and pain. even with chemotherapy she did not survive, she passed away. soul resting in peace.
