Washington, Apr 15 (ANI): Renowned vocalist Natalie Cole, who is known for her utter professionalism, decided to undergo chemotherapy treatment in her concert dressing room, in a bid to continue performing.

Cole, who is battling with Hepatitis C, did not check into a hospital to get treated because she did not want to take time off from work.

However, Cole did agree that Chemotherapy does leave a patient in incredible pain.

“Whatever horror stories you have heard about chemo is true. It is absolutely one of the most debilitating and difficult experiences that could ever happen to a human being. Trying to perform was a real challenge. Just picture an IV (intravenous) hanging from a wardrobe rack in my dressing room in Japan as I tried to prepare for two shows in a night,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

Meanwhile, Cole’s chemotherapy has sadly caused her kidneys to fail, and she’s currently hoping for a life-saving transplant. (ANI)
