7 months... I have to wear this hospital band, 7 months of intermittent hospital stays. 7 weeks of chemo. A total of 24 weeks away from my daughter... I'm not looking for pity. Quite the opposite, I'm not mad I have Leukemia. Truthfully who am I NOT to get it, I am not special. Cancer is a anyone disease, anyone from any walk of life can get it... no one is immune.
I feel it is my job to show others that having Leukemia, it isn't what the tv shows and movies says it is.
"Septua" is a documentation of everything I'll be going through for my 7 month chemo protocal (including peeing in containers on the side of my bed).. Some images might be hard to look at, but reality isn't always nice and neat. Hopefully I can truly convey through my images what cancer is and what it can mean to one's life.
