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."

FREE TRIP TO DC!
Join New Hampshire Working Families Win in Washington DC (or in Keene and Claremont) for the Healthcare for American NOW! National Day of Action!
Quality, affordable healthcare for all people in America is possible and now is the time for real change!
When we work together, in one voice, we are strong. Our Members of Congress and our Senators need to hear from us this week on how important a strong public health insurance option is for our families and our communities health.
Join us this week in Washington D.C. or at a TAKE ACION PARTY in Keene or Claremont to send the message- NOW is the time to transform our healthcare system so that all families can afford to go to a doctor when they are sick, to the hospital when they are injured and to not fear bankruptcy because they just lost their job.
1) Join the Free Bus to DC for the June 25th National Day of Action-ALL WE NEED IS YOU!
Rally and meet with our Senators and Representatives to the U.S. Congress about our need for quality, affordable healthcare.
