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."

Broom Hockey Weekend!

 Thank you, everybody, who has supported me this week. It has really been one for the books. I'm happy my story is out and being told. Hopefully, no other person will ever have to suffer the physically and financially debilitating aspects of disease the way I have.

But even the sickest of the sick or the most tireless advocate needs a break, and what better way than Charlestown's annual Winter Carnival and a broom hockey tournament?

No, I wont even be stepping on the ice. Alexis all ready reminded me of the year I was told to stay put on the snow banks, didn't, and quickly found myself on my back staring at the sky.

I'll be proudly watching my team, made of a combination of local friends and friends from college, join the "A" division after 8 years.

We've turned it into our yearly winter family get together. My house is full of my favorite loved ones from my college days. My parents and sister with her family have even made it this year.

I'm so excited. This is a great end to a wonderful week. Again, thank you everybody.
I'll be back at treatment, and hopefully posting, again Monday.
