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."

Congress is working RIGHT NOW to pass the President's budget, which includes funds for important things like education, health care reform, and energy independence. This is an historic commitment and a vital first step towards getting our country back on the right track. Among other things, President Obama's 2010 budget calls for:

Cutting the deficit in half over the next five years.
Equipping thousands of schools, community colleges, and universities with 21st century classrooms, labs, and libraries.
Eliminating billions in Pentagon waste, which includes funds used for outdated Cold War-style weapons.
Eliminating incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas and giving a generous package of tax cuts to 95% of working families.

How can you help ensure that these investments are made? Here are a couple of ideas:
Write a Letter to the Editor of your local newspaper in support of the budget resolution (we provide sample talking points!)

Call Senators Gregg and Shaheen using our easy-to-use click to call technology and urge them to support the budget resolution when it comes to the Senate floor next week

or Contact Gregg and Shaheen using:

It is imperative that our Senators hear NH voices loud and clear. Please take a moment and take action.
Thank you for all that you do to invest in America's future!
