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."

Big Day

It's a big day today, a really big day. I actually have to go and start my day, oh, about now. I'm headed to Dana Farber for a series of appointments. One with a dermatologist to peek at some "suspicious moles." They were biopsied back in 2003 and showed some "atypical, amorphic cells." Then, I completely forgot about them. Ooops. Any nasty cells in my system could be contributing to reoccurences.
Also, I'm seeing a nutritionist to perfect my anti-cancer diet. I think I've got a good foundation and some skills, but just to err on the side of caution. Knowledge is power.
Xander has opted to go to Chuck-E-cheese with Heather rather than to my appointments (who would have guessed that one?)
I think all around, despite some major freak-outs yesterday about the possibility of snow, it's going to be a good day.
All those rumors about Boston receiving 18" of snow, but I'm only seeing 2" or 3" outside.
Keep us in your thoughts and prayers today.
