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."

sick of it
Last year, activists went to Anthem's NH headquarters to share their personal experiences with increasing costs and decreasing coverage. They also asked the Director of Community Relations questions about claims denials and profits, including "How many claims did Anthem deny in NH to make a $98 million profit in 2007?" They promised answers within a week - a year later, we're still waiting.On Tuesday, we're going back. Not only do we want answers to the questions we asked twelve months ago, but we're going to demand they stop denying care and stop funneling money into defeating health care reform. Join us on Tuesday, September 22nd from 7:30 - 9 a.m. at Anthem's headquarters in Manchester for a rally and press conference to tell Big Insurance that we're sick of it
