Chemotherapy is a treatment that uses drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Chemotherapy may be given by mouth, injection or infusion, or on the skin. Administration is dependent on the type and stage of cancer being treated. Our dedicated Infusion Department nurses are chemotherapy trained and provide one on one personal care for each of their patients.
