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."

After an exhausting but fabulous weekend my treatment has found a way to force me to rest and recover: a PET scan today!

My PET scan scheduled for the past several weeks for Weds. May 4th was changed with a surprise phone call Saturday!!

Last minute appointment changes are par for the course. Any patient needs patience, especially when recognizing you don't have much control over the schedule.

I don't know why they do this. I think it may be for giggles and amusement.

I absolutely scrambled to find a ride for me (the test takes 3 hours) and someone to pick up X since I'm banned from driving for 24 hours, but it's done!

On the upside, the xanax they give me will have me sleeping like a rock until X's baseball game tonight.

I will rest then I'll let you in on the good times and the results.

I've been a follower of your blog for awhile now. You are an amazing woman. I enjoy your honesty and humor. I wanted to tell you about the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in NYC. It is a fantastic place and they are very accomodating...for free to cancer patients. I've stayed there several times and it is like a haven in a storm. Check it out!
