|The Steps of Cancer Care|
The First Step: The first step in the process of cancer care is to appreciate and combat the myths of both the disease as well as its treatment. Instead of viewing cancer and cancer therapy through a shroud of misconceptions, we want to provide you with information such that you may appreciate the realities of cancer treatment. One’s feelings and opinions of cancer are often based on previous experiences with the disease in both animals and our family/friends. These previous experiences will “color” the way we think about and prepare for cancer care in our pets. It is only by replacing the myths and misperceptions of cancer care with present and applicable information that we can think clearly, make decisions and begin to find the hope and opportunities that lie before us as with deal with this disease.
