Saturday morning I headed to the Rose Garden at Queen Elizabeth Park. The roses are beautiful there. I enjoy taking self-portraits in the early morning as I prefer the softer light. As well, the park is pretty quiet, which makes it easier for me to take and test different poses with minimal distractions. Chemo side effects make focusing on anything incredibly challenging.
I love nature!
To recap: On Sunday, July 2nd, I completed Cycle 32 Week 1. 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.
