Week 150 of chemo complete: The view from the North Shore

On Friday, as the rain was steadily falling, I took the Seabus across the Burrard Inlet, from downtown Vancouver to the North Shore, North Vancouver. Close to Waterfront Park, I stopped to admire the Vancouver skyline and watch cargo ships passing by. An enjoyable experience.

Week 150 of chemo complete: The view from the North Shore

To recap: On Sunday, December 17th, I completed Cycle 38 Week 1. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells that affects the plasma cells, a type of immune cell that produces antibodies to fight infection. These plasma cells are found in the bone marrow. As a blood cancer, it is incurable, but treatable. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex). On July 16th, my dexamethasone treatment ended, due to eye damage, reported by my Glaucoma Specialist, from long-term use.

Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
