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."

Dear Adam's Mom

I am so sorry for your loss.
Thank you so much for writing during what must be a very difficult time. You are a very brave woman facing one of the most terrible tragedies a person can face.
We all applaud you.
Thank you for writing to clarify the picture.
I certainly know how in situations like these misinformation gets spread.
Not being close to Adam, I was making conjenctures based on the experiences of many patients.
I am sorry if this caused you more pain in anyway.
I do want you to know that many of us are thinking of you and your family at this time. You have a support in us whenever you would like it.
