Baldies' Blog began originally in the UK by a 26 year old journalist with a blood cancer on a mission to inform the world about bone marrow donation.

He has since died, and I took on the cause of making cancer care more transparent for everybody.

Cancer is a disease that will touch everybody through diagnosis or affiliation: 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed and 1 in 3 woman will hear those words, "You Have Cancer."

I invite you to read how I feel along my journey and
how I am continuing to live a full life alongside my Hodgkin's lymphoma, with me controlling my cancer, not my cancer controlling me.

I hope that "Baldies' Blog" will prepare you to handle whatever life sends you, but especially if it's the message, "You Have Cancer."

Cancer my tone from this AM

Cancer the blog posting from earlier, but not the one where I’m pleading for people to come clean my house. I have some good quality news. I’m smiling just thinking about it.
There are circumstances which could potentially delay myself from transferring back to a semi-normal existence.
My counts could continue to drop. I could need transfusions. I could get an infection. I could not have my house properly cleaned in time.
Get together, rally people, please on my behalf. We are working on it the best we can. (Holler Alissa, Jon & Becky) I need my house cleaned and by Thurs.
Prior to my return is DEEP cleaning: Windows, walls, dusting everything, curtains, linens (must be in hot water), bathrooms top to bottom. The rugs and flooring needs to be steam cleaned.
My doctor could also say he won’t allow it. I don’t think this will happen. I’m looking really well. “Above average” were the words the Physician’s assistant said.
To Dr. A, I say, bad ju-ju boo, if you decide to keep me under lock and key in my hotel room.
I have, finally, gotten myself a collection of books that could keep me amused. I finished “the tipping point,” but I still have no idea how to tip my blog off the charts. I do have ideas, however, on how to tweak patient education to make it more effective.
I’ll write about that later.
I also received some specific answers regarding my questions surrounding my treatment (Thanks Melissa). I’m too tired to get to it now, maybe tomorrow.
