Organize Your Cancer Treatment

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer I felt so overwhelmed with all of the information I was receiving. I was gathering so many lab and radiology reports and there were several appointments to keep track of. I decided to take control of my treatment by organizing this binder with dividers. It went everywhere with me in case I become forgetful with "chemo brain". I feel more empowered by having this vital information at my fingertips. 

These are some suggestions for sections in your binder 
  • Appointments

  • Medical Staff

  • Medication

  • Communication

  • Radiology

  • Labs-Tests

  • Chemo Info

  • Resources

  • Nutrition

  • Insurance - you might want a separate binder or folder​

I created the following forms that I used to record information. (A couple of the forms were given to me by my doctor but I revised them to make everything more uniform).

 

Make space in a file drawer or file container to store all of the pamphlets  booklets, and other information you will collect over the next several months.

 

Just click on the form so you can see the document, then print.
