A Chemo Duck is given to all children that would like on and can help in the recovery of young people through play.
Having a Port
A catheter connects the port to a vein. Under the skin, the port has a septum through which drugs can be injected and blood samples can be drawn many times, usually with less discomfort for the patient than a more typical "needle stick". used mostly to treat haematology and oncology patients.
Having a Hickman Line
A Hickman line is a central venous catheter most often used for the administration of chemotherapy or other medications, as well as for the withdrawal of blood for analysis.
