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."

Farrah Fawcette & ME
Sorry I have been slacking. I have been busy, busy, busy. I need material to transmit.
First things first, the doctor I have been speaking with in Germany is treating no other than. . . . .drumroll please. . . FARRAH FAWCETTE!!
Yes, Entertainment Tonight, my source of news, confirmed that Dr. Ursula Jacob is treating the angel in Los Angeles.
Dr. Jacob does come stateside to California on occasion.
Upon hearing the big time doctor's name mentioned on national television, I emailed to set a tentative date for treatment in Germany.
I am scheduled for August if my disease continues, or maintains, the path it has for the past 3.5 years.
Tonight on NBC is Farrah's documentary of her battle, which I hope includes visuals of her travels internationally.
I'm going to be watching and taking notes to prepare myself for my very own trip. Everybody else please watch too.
We can all mentally prepare ourselves for the journey I'll be taking.
I'd like Farrah to know that, yes, her disease has meant something and changed attitudes. It has specifically helped me. God bless her and keep her in your prayers.
