Me in the infusion center. Hat by madrobins, spoons from fjm, danjite and khaybee.


Me with my infusion pumps. The patients and staff were most delighted with my hat.


Close-up of my drug supply.

The needle once the dressings are off.


My chest needle-free.


Outside for the chemo ritual.


Smashing the bottle.


Four down, eight to go.


Four down, eight to go, the testament of the bottles.


Me, hair by fjm, just before my post-needle shower.
