Cathy Eng: Tried my best to decrease concern regarding meaning of adjuvant chemotherapy

Cathy Eng posted on X/Twitter:

Tried my best last PM to decrease concern regarding meaning of adjuvant chemotherapy:

  • Provided AFTER surgery is completed.
  • To increase disease-free survival and increase overall survival.
  • Can be tolerated very well with excellent QOL.

IMP: cancer patients may also appear young and healthy.”
