Chemotherapy session. Hospital nurse preparing to insert a catheter (in right hand) into a patient's chest. The catheter will be used to deliver drugs into the patient's bloodstream to treat cancer as part of a chemotherapy session. The intention is to kill the cancer cells, but many chemotherapy drugs also have severe side-effects. The nurse is wearing a mask to prevent her infecting the patient with a disease. Photographed on the chemotherapy ward at the Avicene Hospital, Paris, France.
