In brief: Chemo and cancer

Dealing with cancer and its treatment is not something easy to do in many cases.
Not only it is affecting your physical condition, emotionally, you can also develop anxiety, depressed mood, depression etc through out the battle. The chemo themselves do not give you insomnia. However, steroids are given prior to chemo, and this can cause insomnia. Depression/anxiety cause insomnia too.
