Week 14 chemo complete: Embrace nature, embrace life

Week 14 chemo complete: Embrace nature, embrace life
Embrace nature, embrace life

On Sunday I was walking in a forest and reflecting on how fortunate I am, that I am still feeling great after 14 weeks of chemo treatment. I feel extremely fortunate that I can experience the beauty of nature, whether listening to the waves hitting the shore on the beach or watching the sun setting on the horizon. I’m focused on embracing life and staying happy. I remain confident that my cancer levels will continue to lower and remain stable. Thanks everyone for your support and positive energy.

To recap: I have multiple myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. From February 9th 2015, I am on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex). On May 4th I began Cycle 4 for 4 weeks. On Sunday I completed Cycle 4 Week 2.
