NORTHRIDGE, Calif. (KABC) — Getting a massage turned out to be a pleasant bonus in the midst of a grueling chemotherapy treatment for cancer patient Dora Dunn. But at first, she turned it down.
“They asked me if I wanted a massage. At first, I was like, spa? I don’t need that, I want to go home,” Dunn said.
The busy, stressed-out, 37-year-old mother of five was fighting an aggressive form of thyroid cancer. She felt she didn’t have the time for such a luxury.
“As soon as I did, I have to say, I went home relieved, happier, positive,” Dunn said.
Dr. David Kim of Levy Cancer Center says massage helps patients manage their experience with cancer.
