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."

Let the cancer games begin

Let the cancer games begin!
All my struggles before, that was just practice. Now, it’s on in a big way.
I’m excited to be taking more control of my healthcare. I’ve been sitting on the sidelines too long.
It’s time I got in the game.
I mailed the majority of my medical records to Dr. Jacob in Germany over the weekend.
I’m heading to Boston tonight with mom and Xander to stay at Heather’s house. YAY! It’s the first mini-vacation I’ve had in a long, long time.
I’m in need of a new locale. Staying in this house has been driving me crazy.
And guess what?! I’m eating kiwi. Yes, I can now have fruit. I’m easing myself into my new diet, an anti-cancer diet. Low carb/no sugar, much like the Medittarean diet, and very similar to how I all ready eat.
The animals are back in the house too. Both Nika (or sneakers, because she can sneak that nose in anywhere) and Josie, our adult cat that is permanently kitten-sized, are home.
Everything is now right in the world for Xander.
And for all you out there saying how I REALLY need a job, I’m working on it. I have a business idea, and hopefully the support.
Just remember to watch out now.
I see good things in my future, whether a healthy me is included in that I don’t know.
