Perk #3: I Get Fast Tracked For Bloodwork

We all know how boring and time consuming it is waiting to have blood work and other lab tests done.  Before cancer, I would sit in the waiting room for hours, trying to look dignified while holding a bottle of pee in my hand.  Well now, at my hospital at least, all I need to do is say I am a chemo patient and I get fast tracked!  I think the rationale is that they don’t want us chemo patients  hanging out with “sick people” since our immune systems are low.  Hey, works for me!   I also have a special parking permit for chemo patients so that I am guaranteed a parking spot close to the hospital.

Tip:  Use your chemo status to your advantage. Find out if your hospital will fast track your routine lab tests, or give preferred parking.  It doesn’t hurt to ask!
