Don't feel too bad, pain is a part of the treatment.
The patient will likely experience nausea, loss of bowel control, and episodes of depression, and screaming fits should not disconcert concerned caregivers. Exhaustion should be expected as well, but remember the process is supposed to be harder on the cancerous cells, so its best not to give up before it is done. Another reason to continue the treatment is to prevent a re-occurrence of the disease before it is completely eliminated.
True, some forms of cancer can be fatal.
The bad cells burrow away in areas sometimes hard to identify. And sometimes seemingly good cells turn bad in an instant. And unfortunately, we've seen it recently. New cancer cells appeared before our very eyes, from as far away as the UP in fact. The threshold has been met and now many think the patient is terminal, but perhaps its possible our treatment will have an effect to buy some time. It may even help if we can get the patient to stop smoking. Perhaps even if we can re-instill the will to live.
We're not ready to give up yet.
However, there is the possibility that the bad cells will cling on long enough that the treatment hurts many of the good cells. We are sorry in advance for what needs to be done.
Its an inexact science unfortunately, and there can be a cost to heal properly, but we'll do our damnedest to see it through to the end.

Detroit Is Dead.
Detroit, Michigan, The "motor city", jewel of the mid-west, manufacturing magnet, and dominator of automotive excellence for multiple decades passed of cancer during the night. She was 310 years old.
Born in 1701 as a fur trading post, Detroit's history had been vibrant and always interesting. In the Mid 1700s, Detroit's affair with the British might have been long term but for General Washington bringing her back home in 1796. In 1805, she became scarred horribly by a fire, yet still had the tenacity to flourish, and the allure to bring more settlers and become incorporated as a city in 1815.
As Michigan adopted its first constitution in 1835, Detroit was honored with the designation as the capitol. A couple of years later, the state was admitted to the union. In 1847, Detroit lost her capitol seat to her daughter Lansing, but remained and served with honor against aggressions emanating from the Brits in Windsor.
Obituary continued below.

"People are very hungry for something new. I think they are interested in being called to be a part of something larger than the sort of small, petty, slash-and-burn politics that we have been seeing over the last several years."-
President Barack Obama
So much for that.
Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers, the wife of Congressman John Conyers (MI-14) both reminded us of how absolutely hateful Democrats can be and personally destroyed another sliver of my faith in humanity when she accosted fellow council member Kwame Kenyatta, making fun of his alleged battle with cancer while being restrained by security officers from physically attacking the man.
What provoked her behavior? Kenyatta dared request that official budget proposals be made in writing.
That cad. How dare he?!
