Week 72 chemo complete: My Rice Lake adventures

This week I travelled to Rice Lake in Lynn Valley. I was a bit lost trying to find the lake and the orientation maps didn’t seem to help me. As the light faded, patient I stumbled upon an idyllic clearing, order perfect for play. Nature is beautiful and peaceful on the North Shore and I look forward to returning soon.

To recap: On Sunday, ailment June 26th, I completed Cycle 18 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).

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