Adenocarcinoma Collage

By Karen Randle

October 26th, 2022

I have been in treatment for stage 4 adenocarcinoma lung cancer at Dartmouth Cancer Center in Lebanon, NH since my diagnosis in April 2021. I created a collage that captures much of my story. Except for the photos, all of the items are from my treatment in infusion and radiation; numerous infusion wristbands, IV tubing, and flowers made from flexible tape used over gauze. Photos include my oncologist, radiation oncologist, and mindfulness teacher; others of me in my Aquaplast mask (!), me and my husband and brother & sister, and images of Buddhist related resources, and my patient reflection posted in the Mettle Heath Community on Instagram.
