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."

Special Thanks

I had to write a special thanks to my man who is holding it down at home. He is our families "rock," and he's taking good care of my son and me. He does a great job keeping our lady friends jealous knowing that I snagged the hottest, smartest, handy man around. He has a nice support club of woman who would like to be extra supportive if my treatment ever went really badly. I can certainly understand how he has the ladies lining up.
His most recent reason to increase me love and affection, despite being a single dad through out my treatments, he still gives me some smooth presents. Case and point is to the right. My new organized closet, which I can know use as a dressing room. Surprise, I don't have half the clothes you thought I did. I am a clothes horse, and I do like trendy pieces I find on clearance (thanks to being the size I am), but I stick with the basics. I have a long term love affair with some clothes. I have things from both junior high and high school that I still wear today (if you can believe that). My hippie days and "baggy clothes phase" were not limited to my youth. I just toned it down a bit.
So thank you, Mr Ford, my man, and also his father Rev, for helping be a handy man.

So sweet of Jon. I'd be lining up for him but he's too tall for me. hehe. besides, he was kinda scary when I first met him... remember Ursula Hall. he was like the creepy big guy in an all girls' bldg. totally spooked me out.
