  • Is she running a fever? When I was going through chemo, my pediatric oncologist told us to call them whenever I had a fever of 101 or higher. Also it could very well be just a cold, but due weaken immune system it could last a lot longer than a typical cold. I'd call her oncologist. A simple infection (viral or bactrial) could be serious in an immunocompromised individual.
