Cycle 5: Feb blood test results – Cancer levels dropped

Good News!

My February blood test results show that my cancer levels dropped. They are now 3 down from between 5 and 6 in January.

I’m super happy my numbers are back on track. Feeling optimistic about March.

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

I have multiple myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma 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 mid-October, I’m being treated with Kyprolis (carfilzomib), an IV chemo, Cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone.
