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."

Ripping my hair out

I’ve been under some stress this week.
By some stress, I mean, if I hadn’t just regrown my hair, I’d be pulling it out.
X is on vacation. I am not able to take “mom trips” to public places.
I’m really not even able to set up play dates.
This has been one of the worst cold and flu seasons on record. Everywhere but my own home are a potential threat.
Due to my previous acute problems of pneumonia and gastroenteritis, I can’t really run around, go sledding, and play basketball.
From a writing professional point, as a default side effect, I’ve also been hitting up my unpublished folder a little bit for my postings.
Sorry, but if I get too sick from too much stress, there will be no more baldies’ blog at all!
That just sounds really sad all around. I’m hoping soon, life will stop being a tornado and settle into the whirlwind I enjoy.

What makes you wonderful is that you are so real. Having control all the time for us who are mostly healthy is hard enough...never mind being where you are. Keeping it honest makes your blog one that I find time to read regularly. I actually was going to share your blog with my lady friends at mine...I will this weekend. Sharing your story, your days, your hours is such a gift to all of us who take the time to read. Thanks
