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."

Back at Huffing!

I've gone back to Huffing, the good, legal, change the world kind.
Parenting With Cancer: Unchartered Territory has been published today.

See for yourself at

I never cease to be excited when I see my words in print! The thrill is always as great.

But wait, it gets even better.

I am an official Huffer. I have a permanent author's archive!
If you never want to miss any of my published pieces be sure to follow me.

As for my most recent story, please be sure to share it with everybody and comment honestly. I'm excited to have a forum where we can talk openly about these issues.

I am reading and will respond.

This is a much needed boost to my writing confidence. Now, I'm motivated to continue on my next endeavor.

I haven't been as dedicated to the blog recently because I've been working on books to FINALLY publish.
One is a children's book entitled "Z and The Cancer Meanie," which I wrote four years ago as an answer to Xander's questions regarding my treatment.

A long time friend, Chris LoParco, has been doing the illustrations, and they are absolutely amazing. The pictures put my words to shame. I'm honored to be on the same page as his talent.

 That needs to be copywrighted, then we'll put our feelers out for publishers.

I've also been polishing up my Novel, "Real Women are Bald," which I also started four years ago. I realized I have enough material for three books.

It's looking like a trilogy: Real Woman Are Bald, Living History: I cancervive, and Adventures in Alternatives.

At least the titles are somewhat finished. Would they catch your eye? Be honest.

Fortunately, I'm even enjoying rereading my words.

It's been so long I've forgotten what I said. I want to hurry through to get to the next page. I remember I thought the ending was great. I wanted to flip to the end to remember what I'd done, just like I've done with all my favorite books in the past.

 All these things, I'm feeling all kinds of lucky today. Cross your fingers and hope it stays.
