Week 120 chemo complete: Seeking adventure in the early morning

Shortly after sunrise, I travelled to Queen Elizabeth Park. I love experiencing life there. As I walked, I imagined myself wandering along an endless trail, listening to wildlife, and wondering what adventure lay around the next corner.

The start of a beautiful day.

To recap: On Sunday, May 28th, I completed Cycle 30 Week 4. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells that affects the plasma cells, a type of immune cell that produces antibodies to fight infection. These plasma cells are found in the bone marrow. As a blood cancer, it is incurable, but treatable. 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.
