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."

I did it. I finally did. I asked google its opinion on the can kids play with toy gun issue. I have heard so many conflicting opinions. I know mine and I needed confirmation that my "evidence-based parenting" thing I've been applying was also inaccordance with the studies. There, in black and white, from several countries, there appeared study after study saying playing with guns will happen with boys as long as they have two fingers or a stick. The problem lay in if the toys looked real and if the environment supported violence. Just in case you wondered.
