At the Cheyenne Regional Cancer Center, our compassionate and highly trained providers use National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines to develop individual treatment plans and promote the best outcome for every patient being treated with chemotherapy.

Chemotherapy—a treatment that uses medication to stop the growth of cancer cells—can be administered in a variety of ways, depending on the type and stage of the cancer being treated. It may be given alone or with other treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy or biologic therapy.

Chemotherapy education: What to expect

Every person’s experience with cancer treatment is different—both physically and emotionally. Often, knowing what to expect prior to initiating chemotherapy can ease the stress and anxiety that patients and their families may be feeling.

In one-on-one chemotherapy education with an oncology-certified nurse or nurse practitioner, Cheyenne Regional Cancer Center patients receive information regarding their treatment regimen, tips on how to manage side effects and information on local resources and support.
