In 2012, Emily Helck, a writer and artist living in New Jersey, was diagnosed with breast cancer. While she was undergoing treatment, Emily took a picture of herself every week for a year and turned the photos into a fascinating time-lapse video “one year/one minute”.
Last September, when I started chemo, I also started taking a picture of myself every week. I was originally going to do this for the 12 weeks of Taxol. My Herceptin treatment (not technically chemo, but chemo-ish) was to last one year, so when Taxol ended I decided to keep going, and chronicle the full 52 weeks — September 21, 2012 to September 21, 2013. That might actually be 53 weeks. Whatever. I went 21 to 21.
