I started four cycles of FEC chemo 11 years ago today - it was Friday 13th then too. That seemed very ominous. Due to a slippage of a week when my blood counts were low, I then started four cycles of Tax on Friday 13th July. To anyone wondering about having chemo on Friday 13th, I'd say it's a very good day to do it! For me, Friday 13th is now lucky, and I have been fit and well for the past 11 years.
