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."

There is a story unfolding right now. It is a story about positive expectations leading to positive actions. There seems to be a ground-swell of positive expectations and hope from around the world for our life condition to change.
Whether you disagree or agree, we have a new President . The level of hope that is being expressed by millions of people around the world is unique.
What if nothing happens? Even the President -Elect uses caution when talking about how long the changes will take to make.
It may be that HOPE is what we need instead of complacency and fear. Maybe, if we all start thinking optimistically instead of negatively, it will be contagious, and our expectations will be more positive.
Positive expectations can lead to positive action. There is some synchronicity that is interesting right now.....people seem happier….the people who traveled to DC are all happy...they have something they believe in that might spread.
The story of the pilot who guided the Airliner into the Hudson, no one died...that gives us hope: Hope that good things can happen instead of bad things.
Let’s notice what is working, and reinforce this with our fellow co-workers or community. The theme for this time of change and reformation is: Renewal, Continuity and Unity. Just like Martin Luther King….maybe we can have our dreams come true....let’s try to stay open to it!
Thank you Deb W. For sharing this with us all.

I am a believer. Hope is certainly what drives us to the daily grind. It is so wonderful to see all these people moved by the belief that we can do and be better. I am hopeful. I am also very aware that as a leader hope can never be under rated!
