Side effects are scary

I take chemotherapy. The doctor told me you will have hair fall off, and you might have these side effects. They have a booklet for you to read. When you read those side effects, oh, very scary, but you have to go through that to prevent any cancer cell left in you body. And the medicine doesn't recognize good cells or bad cells, they just kill. So they're talking about new methods. Genetic therapy changes your genes or boosts up your immune system. Chemotherapy looks very primitive compared to those new methods. So I hope that researchers will go that direction so we don't have to suffer that much as a patient.
