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."

Dr.Dana eye extrodionnaire
Awww linda, always know how to make a girl feel better. But I'm feeling a little better on my own. I have a virus. Like a normal person, like everybody else, but I'm still dragging my bad ass down to btown to dana eye estrodionaire. My eyes are ground zero for the gvhd battle. I use reastasis, eye drops 6 times daily, I take B6 and avoid anything with anticholinergic effects. Yet my eyes still burn and hurt to the point I close my eyes and with I was blind. They're burning alongside forcing the feeling I have a foreign object lodged in my cornea from the inflammation.motrin could theoretically help. I use berberis homaccord as an anti inflammatory. There is no evidence it hurts. There is no evidence it helps either, except me saying so. If the drops don't work, I close my eyes until the hurt goes away. Maybe for days. I'm looking into trials today. Its time to get aggressive. Now that's something I know how to get down and do.
