I do feel I need some inspiration from fellow cancer patients. What I’m looking for is rather specific and may be difficult to find. However, I’m living with a cancer that is 1% of all cancer, long odds are a part of my life. I’m looking for cancer patients that are entrepreneurs that have created, launched, or built something post-diagnosis (e.g. started a movement, founded a startup, built an app, launched a project). Ideally I would love to find someone that has an incurable, terminal cancer and needs chemo treatment every 2-3 years. I want someone similar to me, so I can understand how they do it, to help inspire me with my entrepreneurial endeavors.

My everyday interests are multiple myeloma, emerging technology, photography, and healthcare as I continue to explore how I can share awareness about multiple myeloma with others. One way I hope to achieve that is through Cancer Sabbatical my personal project. The desire is that I will generate knowledge and creative ideas that can be put into designing a solution to a problem faced by multiple myeloma patients.

I am a multiple myeloma patient, Multiple myeloma is a a rare blood cancer. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. It was the most challenging year of my life.

I believe in me and I know I will accomplish my goals.
