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."

Happy Anniversary

Believe it or not, my beau and I have been official for a full five years today (that's married, folks).
What to do to celebrate such a milestone?
Years back I was promised a romantic getaway, but for some reason, those plans have been pushed back indefinitely (tenth, maybe).
Five years would have been flowers had I not been a buzz kill and reminded J yesterday that I hate flowers and would much rather take the cash and run.
We'll be going out to dinner, I'll be dressing up, with make-up (my healthy face) upon request, and yes, after almost ten years together he got up the courage to ask for his present in advance.
And just because he's doing the best he can, I maybe he'll get it.
