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 jumped the big house yesterday (monday) because I was feeling "better." But better isn't well. I got x up and dressed and sent him to school but not before throwing up something unidentifiable since its been so long since I ate. I've eaten cucumbers, bread, and water. And I thought I'd have trouble losing the steroid weight. I think I'm at 142 lbs. My goal is 135lbs. That gives me a bmi of 22, the weight at which optimal healing occurs. I even went up and down stairs without losing my breath. But I'm still nauseaus and uncomfortable.
