Today is my last day of chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Aside from some blood draws and CT scans, I’m “off” until late November. I’ll be spending this recovery time hanging with Mercy and Judd, going on a few hikes, and getting as much art into my brain as possible. Thank you for all of the support. I’m truly grateful for all of the love and encouragement I’ve received since my diagnosis. Keep crushing shit. ✨✨✨

So far, I’ve had an unplanned (and un-sedated!) sigmoidoscopy and I most recently underwent a colonoscopy which required me to take four Dulcolax pills right before dumping a large bottle of Miralax (so much “lax") into a 64oz Gatorade like I was playing a fucked up nerds-vs.-jocks-type prank on myself in the name of health. Thankfully nothing else was discovered during the procedure. I have literally seen inside of myself in an entirely new way. I have an MRI, CT scans, and bloodwork scheduled for the end of this week. Once those are complete, my doctors will be able to map out my treatment plan. I have a great team of doctors at Keck Medicine at USC who have been extremely
