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."

I was hoping to get an update in before the chemo kicked in, but don't know if I'll be able to. I'm in the infsion room, which is more like a dept, with beds, chairs, isolation rooms and tele monitors, sitting in the comfy green pleather chemo recliner. I've had an eventful couple weeks. X and his cousin went to soccer camp last week so I was on mommy duty carting them back and forth. I'm impressed with how much x improved. He is really a soccer superstar, and I'm not just saying that because I'm his mom. X is still anxious and I'm looking into ways to help him cope with the reality that I have cancer. He worries more than I knew. Last night he talked about praying to God every morning and trying to make medicine but not being able to find the right ingredients. I told him not to worry, lots of other people were looking for the right mix too. It will come. He's with meme this week while I recover. Thank goodness for family that helps. She's been a Godsend this past year being available to babysit. Again, lucky lucky me. If it wasn't for this nasty cancer thing I know you'd all be jealous of how spoiled I am. ;)

We just got some of those comfy chemo recliners for our infusion room at Mt Ascutney. They are WAY more comfortable than what we had previously. I'm glad you get to have something like that to relax in!
