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."

Going Solo

I'm leaving on family vacation tonight. . . . . . . without a cell phone!
Yes, I'm going bare.
I'm going out into the wilderness without my beloved smart phone.
That means no internet, no email, no phone calls.
This isn't my choosing.
This is part of the never ending cat debaucle that killed off my blackberry and plunged me into the abysss of finding the perfect cell phone and service for rural NH.
It's looking like a droid from verizon, but only because J gets to make those choices.
If it was me, I'd be running back to my handy dandy black berry.
I'm alive well and on vacation if you're wondering why I haven't written.

Have a great time, Hilary. It's nice going "off the grid" with no phone sometimes, you might enjoy it. xo
