I appreciate the very verbal response from everybody. I invite you all to please view the comments regarding "On the outside looking in" if you have time. I have not, but I did get the highlights.
I am glad for the very public, emotional response.
I'd like you to all know I have the opportunity to moderate responses and comments. I choose not to.
I will say that what we all have in common is that we want what is best for our children.
I will also say, very clearly, to the reader who asked for a public apology.
I AM SORRY.
You are a good person. Those you love, are good people.
I would like you to know, I was not speaking about you, not even a little bit, I was referring to you as a person who assisted during a fit, and as a bystander.
You got caught in the crossfire. My bad.
I also want to thank you all for STANDING UP and saying your side. It's good to hear it out loud.
I made the decision to make my life public to allow those like me who experience what I do the possibility to know they are not alone.
All who comment openly will remain anonymous.
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."
