Idelle Davidson and Dan Silverman Interviewed on Voice America - Link to It Here

Last week we were guests on "Frankly Speaking About Cancer," a program on Voice America internet radio.  Cancer Support Community president and CEO Kim Thiboldeau asked some great questions about the symptoms and causes of chemo brain, and why so many oncologists fail to mention to patients that chemo brain is a very real side effect of chemotherapy.  To hear what we had to say, click on this link. I'd appreciate hearing your comments about the program, either here or via email.

Registration Open for Healing Odyssey Weekend Retreat (April 9-11)

If you've had cancer and are still dealing with the trauma of your diagnosis, then I would like to recommend a wonderful organization called Healing Odyssey.

The organization holds therapeutic weekend programs for women cancer survivors and is now taking applications for their spring retreat.
I participated in 2006 just after my own diagnosis

Keeping Your Mind and Hands Active [From CLL Survivor Bruce Lantry, Rural Nebraska]

Chemo Brain was one of the most noticeable side effects of chemo for me, and one that was not even mentioned while I was going through treatment. It would have greatly benefited me to know about the problem earlier since it would have saved me some concern about the mental problems I was experiencing.
