[MOL] Cancer Fatigue: A New Website



Cancer Fatigue: A New Website
    [05/11/99; Washington Post]

What is cancer fatigue? This extreme exhaustion often accompanies cancer
treatments and affects 76 percent of cancer patients. It can last from a few
days to months and is considered one of the least understood side effects
of cancer treatment. The Oncology Nursing Society has launched an
interactive Web site: 

	http://www.cancerfatigue.org

to provide information about this condition. Patients and caregivers can 
ask oncology nurses confidential questions 24 hours a day. The site also 
lists information on coping strategies and chemotherapy-induced anemia, 
cancer fatigue's most common cause.
