Week 170 of chemo complete: Forests are happy places

Saturday evening as the sun was setting, I headed to a nearby forest. I always meet nice people that chat or say hello. Yesterday a jogger enthusiastically provided advice on cool places to explore and photograph. I love spending time in forests.

Week 170 of chemo complete: Forests are happy places

To recap: On Sunday, May 13th, I completed Cycle 43 Week 2. I have multiple myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma 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. On January 9th I began Ninlaro chemo to combat steadily rising cancer levels.

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