ASL Sign for Chemotherapy?

A member of my late-deafened support group was trying to describe a sign 
he had just learned for "chemo" (chemotherapy).   He described it this way:

"Open four hand, palm up, tap pinky to the chest where a port
would be - just below the shoulder joint, in the meat of the
pectoral muscle"

That's a little ambiguous to me as I don't know which hand or shoulder, 
if the fingers are splayed or if the little finger touches once or 
twice.  If I take it to be the right hand's little finger touching the 
chest just below the right shoulder, palm up, thumb tucked, fingers 
splayed, touching just once, would this be correct?
