Thursday was a beautiful autumn day for forest adventures. The sun was peaking through the clouds as I travelled back to Queen Elizabeth Park. I had taken self-portraits there on Wednesday, but my idea didn’t work out, so I decided to try something different. I love the quiet of the park. A beautiful oasis in the city.
To recap: On Sunday, November 19th, I completed Cycle 37 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). On July 16th, my dexamethasone treatment ended, due to eye damage, reported by my Glaucoma Specialist, from long-term use.
Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
