The Proof is in the Belgian Pudding

October 15, 2011

A recent study in Belgium that followed the development of children whose mothers received chemotherapy during pregnancy revealed some results worth celebrating:

Pregnant women with cancer do not need to delay their cancer treatment or terminate their pregnancy. The benefits of chemotherapy to the mothers outweigh any potential long-term harm to the children.

I sure hope this study falls into the hands of American oncologists. Would it be dastardly of me to mail an anonymous copy to a certain oncologist (who will remain nameless)? Hmmm…Halloween is almost here, and I’m feeling kind of naughty…
