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."

Hi To All From Vic

Last weekend Hillary, Heather, Jon, Allen, Xander, Pierce and Preston all went to the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston. At the Tiger exhibit a white tiger came towards Hillary immediately and starred at her. Hillary was in her wheelchair and she thought it was odd. They moved to the other end and the tiger followed. She raised her hand to waive at the tiger and the tiger raised it's paw. I can't make this stuff up! So they went along to see the rest of the zoo. They decided to go back to see the tigers and the same tiger came running back to see her!! This is very odd and must be an omen. The white tiger even roared at the other orange tiger.

We have thought of a few reasons that this happened

The tiger wants her to stay fierce and aggressive and continue to fight. Be the tiger queen instead of the Lion King. show her courage to all of us.

The tiger represents her attitude when she decides to do something, nothing will get in her way.

The tiger is a reincarnated friend that just wanted to say hi.

The tiger was hungry and was looking for someone who couldn't run fast!

I'm sure their are a lot more reasons that can be developed from this omen. This is just another impact that Hillary has on the world.

Hillary is not doing well. She Had Chemo on Monday, her last scheduled pharisees on Wednesday. Pharisees has been helping her lungs heel. Now she can get the tubes out of and off her chest. Yesterday she went to get IV fluids. This morning she is being admitted to Dartmouth again with a fever. It looks like it could be a septic infection. She has been getting weaker for a while now. She is in a lot of pain. Last night she asked that we set up a meeting to pick out her cemetery plot. She knows her body well. She was feeling pretty High last night as the Medical Marijuana really was working well. Out of all the medication she takes, that seems to be the one that has the best affect. I have changed my opinion and think it should be legalized just like alcohol. Lets hope she is wrong about this one or just planning for the long term future.

She has certainly surprised all of us and herself many times before. She has got to meet her German bone marrow Donor Ankh. We have too many Omens and dreams to fulfill.

Check out Hillary's Blog

Please keep Hillary in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks for your support.


Vic, Nancy, Pat & Grace, Heather & Allen, Pierce, Preston, Jon, Xander and especially Hillary

Both of those tigers are former pets that were confiscated. They are somewhat imprinted and like to interact with humans. It's very likely that Luther was trying to play with the person in the wheelchair!
