Mum's Not Having Chemo is a blog about a woman's experience with cancer. In 2011, she was diagnosed with ovarian and uterine cancer.[1] Because of her belief in alternative medicine's effectiveness for cancer, she chose to use alternative treatments instead of chemotherapy. She did have a hysterectomy,[2] so she is merely taking a 36% increased chance of relapse and death.[3]

The blog is largely written by her daughter (as one might expect from the name), who writes blog posts on various topics, usually supportive of alternative medicine such as homeopathy,[4] pee therapy,[5] black salve, and medical astrology.[6]

The blog is updated weekly, and started from the cancer diagnosis.
