I have created a new video sharing my latest cancer news. For those that don’t know, capsule I’m a University of British Columbia PhD student that will be going back on chemo treatment this week for the fourth time. There will be alot of challenges from these chemo drugs as the side effects can be quite severe. I’m staying positive and focused on my photography as an outlet for maintaining my happiness during these dark days. Thanks everyone for your support. I’m going to use social media such as twitter, viagra blogging, youtube, pinterest, and quora to keep everyone informed about my Multiple Myeloma and chemotherapy. Many people may have questions about my chemo or wonder how to assist someone recently diagnosed with cancer. I’m willing to help as I can by sharing my story.
