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 mardi gras
After a week of stressing, with winter break finally upon us, I did what I do best. I ran off. Yes, feeling sick or not, it was time x and I had another adventure or at least a mini-vacation at my sister's. We're now in natick after making the three hour trek yesterday. X certainly didn't wake me up at 6 am telling me to get to work writing so we could leave and get to chuck-e-cheese asap, his reward for making a generous donation to haiti of his own volition from his own savings. Yay! We've now safely escaped to mass for a couple days, despite my guilt of leaving poor crippled j at home to fend for himself.
