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."

Autumn, Again!

It's officially fall, another autumn, I've made it again to my fave season.

 I've spent the last four struggling for my life with bronchiolitis, tranplany recover, radiation, transplant prep. 

It was exhausting just writing that.

 But somehow I've managed to enjoy x grow and mature with my fam. 

We've coached soccer and apple picked every year. 

I'm so glad I didn't roll over and stay in bed instead. and now the effort has started paying, x is getting high grades. His last spelling tests were 99 and 105. 

Not bad. 

He scored 13 out of 15 shots to be first at claremont's U-8 shoot out.

 He gets to try at states on October 2. 

Of course, also the day of my bros wedding. 

We have worked how we'll manage both.

 X is just excited for the traveling and trophies. I have to say, I'm excited too.

I for one am grateful you stood up & fought this dreadful disease ... that you've continued to work to get the most out of life ... that you've accomplished so much ... & that you've shared your journey with us. You are an inspiration Hill. Looking forward to a Princess Day.
