Your Cancer Treatment Goals (The James)

Your Cancer Treatment Goals (The James)

Setting goals can help you to stay focused during your cancer treatment. Your treatment goals may be broad, or short-term and specific. For example, your overall goal may be to complete your chemotherapy treatments as ordered by your doctor. A short-term goal may be to meet with a dietitian at your next appointment and talk about what to eat during treatment. It is important to work closely with your health care team as you set your goals.

Write down your specific cancer treatment goals:
