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."

Women: Empowerment is Coming to Hanover!

 Never in history has the women's voice in politics been so powerful, and now, it is more important than ever for women to stand up for themselves, their families, and their communities! 

New Hampshire's State House leadership is currently decimating programs that help women and their children find and access health care services, programs that provide child care assistance to working moms, and much more.  

Empower Yourself and Find Your Voice!

Join NH Citizen's Alliance for interactive and skill-building workshops designed to help women take greater leadership roles in their communities and in government. 

Workshops are non-partisan and Held in Hanover on Wednesday nights.
  5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the Howe Library, 13 South St, Hanover.

Two workshops: Assessing Leadership Opportunities and Lessons Learned Campaign Roundtable

Interested in running for office, but not sure which opportunity is best for you? This workshop will outline the various elected city and state positions available (and which ones pay a salary!) and the responsibilities of each position. Participants will also have the opportunity to assess their own leadership skills and leadership challenges, and which positions may be best for them. (5:30 – 6:30 p.m.)
- AND -

Join women who have run for office before to learn more about their experiences - what they learned, did well, and what they would have done differently. This roundtable exchange will allow participants to ask key questions and elicit non-partisan advice from women who have done it before! (6:30 – 7:30 p.m.)
