Chemo: A Treatment that Could Wind Up Giving You (Another) Cancer

Oncologist Robert Warren counsels patient Deborah Charles after giving her the results of a weekly test to monitor blood counts at Georgetown University Hospital’s Lombardi Cancer Center in Washington May 23, 2007. Since Charles, a journalist for Reuters, was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2006, she has had to back away from actively covering the news and has had three operations, four rounds of chemotherapy and has been visiting the hospital at least once a week for appointments and treatment.
