In brief: Breast/colon cancer

Xeloda (capecitabine) (www.
xeloda.com) is used to treat both breast and colon cancers. Check out http://www.drugs.com/xeloda.html for more info. Consider having a family member accompany her to each of her appointments. A second pair of ears is always helpful. Be sure to bring all medications (from all doctors) + over-the-counter stuff to each visit.
