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 spent this week resting after chemo on Monday.
And by resting I mean nothing but sleep on Tues, Weds., and most of Thurs.
Thurs I had to ease myself out of sleep mode so I went grocery shopping with Deb.
I had to save my energy for my brother's wedding, which was absolutely fabulous and worth all the rest.
Rehearsal dinner was Friday night and I managed to check out all the festivities. I got to eat, drink, and be merry.
On Sat. X had his first state shoot out for soccer. . . .. in Dover NH. . . . 2.5 hours away.
We had to be out of the house by 6:45.
He placed 4th but still had a good time playing with cousin Carter and making some new friends.
Even better, Meme and Grandpa (Jon's parents) took them out to Chuck E Cheese. Can life get any better? Soccer and Chuck E Cheese?
I managed to get out of bed at 6:20 am and not crawl back in until 9:30 pm.
That's an accomplishment.
And I didn't even take my ritalin!
Yay, go- me!
I managed to dance at the wedding, which was my ultimate goal. I hadn't danced at a wedding since Heather's 2 years ago.
I have, however, danced at Bachelorette parties many, many times.
I didn't realize the excited skeptical that would be caused by me hitting the dance floor but the cameras came out like Lindsay Lohan with the paparrazi.
So todays "just chill" time has actually been turned into an all day after party celebrating my nephew's 1 year birthday. Congrats Preston!
I'm out to rest.
