Learn about chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is the term used to describe the drugs that a child is given to kill the cancer cells.

These drugs may be taken orally (by mouth), intravenously (injected directly into a vein), intramuscularly (injected directly into the muscle) or intrathecally (directly into the spinal fluid).
