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."

From Last Night

I am in bed, sick and exhausted. I am trying not to move but still write to you and somehow fit in watching the soloist. This is a combination of illness and medications. I can barely concentrate on one thing long enough to complete anything, but what I did accomplish today was big time. I am now allowed to take a weekend of recovery rest. What entitles me to this (other than the fact that I am extremely ill and need to constantlty treat my body like a temple)? I spoke to 60 minutes today!! Now, let's not all get too excited, but I have to say I am.
