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."

Tuesday-- I'm at the hospital. I made it here while constantly having hot flashes and under the threat of vomiting. I lost my breath annd wet my pants while getting x to school and said fuck it. I did it anyway. Dr. G and I agree this wasn't the control we wanted. Luckily the disease hasn't progressed. I'm going back to 5mg of prednisone hoping it will help. If I have adrenal problems the prednisone goes back up to 20. I don't care as long as I can again get x to school without it exhausting me and bring him home while i have energy. I missed his first practice as a big 2 grader. He has games this year and I can't wait. I enjoy my life, but I miSs me. I miss the smile, the jokes. Too much has been taken and it needs to stop. Hopefully my magic pill will come though soon. Say lots of prayers.
