Study Description:The goal of this research study is to see if there are techniques available to

Mindfulness Relaxation has any effect on your feelings of anxiety, depression
(sadness), distress, your cancer related symptoms of fatigue (tiredness),
sleep, pain, and your immune function (how well your body can fight infection).

Mindfulness relaxation is a technique to help you quiet the thoughts in your
mind, and relax your body before and during chemotherapy.
