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."

Today is a Gay Day in NH

NH has approved gay marriage.
Gov. Lynch signed the bill into law yesterday. I just saw the celebration on the news.
I was watching the morning news with my husband, when I saw a woman with a shaved head, with black fuzz poking through, glasses and a white beater.
“Oh, she’s cute.” I said to Jon.
Then, the headlines flash, it was an advocacy group for gay marriage rights, which erupted in cheers at the announcement the legislation had passed.
My “gayday” is usually off.
I think, or hope, that it’s because I don’t see people as a measure of their sexuality. I’m busy looking at them as a person.
As far as checking out the cuteness factor, I think of people like art. I like to appreciate beauty everywhere. This includes the passing faces.
Those are really my favorite canvases.
Today is going to be a gay day in NH.
