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."

A man staggers into an emergency room with a concussion, multiple bruises,two black eyes and a five iron wrapped tightly around his throat.Naturally, the doctor asks him what happened. Well, it was like this",said the man. "I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when at adifficult hole, we both sliced our balls into a pasture of cows. We went to look for them, and while I was rooting around noticed one of thecows had something white at its rear end. I walked over and lifted up thetail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife's monogram on it,stuck right in the middle of the cow's butt! That's when I made my bigmistake." What did you do?" asks the doctor."Well, I lifted the cow's tail and yelled to my wife, 'Hey, this looks likeyours!'. I don't remember much after that.
