4 Reasons to Get Organized
Your time is important! Get the most out of it by remembering the benefits of staying organized:
It will save you time. Keeping a list of all your healthcare providers (HCPs) and their contact information in one place can save you lots of frustration. You don’t want to waste precious minutes tracking down the phone number of your oncology nurse or pharmacist again (and again!).
It will help you stick to your schedule. Which is key—sticking to your chemo schedule will help you maximize treatment success. To make sure nothing important slips your mind, note all upcoming treatments, blood tests and checkup dates on your chemo calendar.
It will help you stay one step ahead. Knowing what to expect during each treatment cycle can help you prevent, or at least work around, any chemo side effects that might occur.
It will help out your friends and family. When people ask, “How can I help?” you’ll be able to tell them exactly what they can do to make your life easier.
