Week 32 chemo complete: Inspired by nature around me

Week 32 chemo complete: Inspired by nature around me

Each morning I wake up, I feel fortunate that I’m healthy enough to explore, to wander, to enjoy what life has to offer. I try not to let whatever side effects I may be experiencing keep me down or dampen my spirits. I remain inspired by what nature has to offer and excited for the adventures I will experience tomorrow.

To recap: On Sunday, September 20th I completed Cycle 8 Week 4. 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. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex). I started Cycle 9 on September 21st.

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