Welcome to the Spring edition of Inside Health

John_Fogarty_1_sml websize 2Welcome to the Spring edition of Inside Health.

It is upsetting that there is an increasing need in our community for cancer facilities, research and care.

It is, however, heartening that so many types of cancer are treatable and in many
cases, curable.

When patients are diagnosed with cancer, often their whole world is turned upside down and what lies ahead is frightening and unknown.

Inside this edition, you will find information and advice from our oncologists about what chemotherapy will entail, insight from someone who is currently undergoing treatment and some information about what trials and research are underway.

There is also information on ways to look after your health, preventatively and with varying forms of treatment.

I hope you find it a useful and enjoyable read.
