Cancer patients need to be extra diligent during these warmer months. Radiation treatment can cause your skin to burn more easily. Even during chemotherapy, you want to avoid sun exposure, as your skin may be more susceptible to damage.

Food-borne illnesses typically increase during the summer months, when bacteria can multiply quickly.  You should remain vigilant take extra precautions about safe food-handling and which foods to avoid.

Remember you will probably have family and friends wanting to visit for Christmas and extra invites to function with more people contact so take care when your immune system is at its lowest.

You need ask your medical team for advice on Summer safety precautions  and the affect on your treatment.
