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 think my body has a one week camping quota before it starts going haywire. After one week, I grin and bear it for the fam, especially x, who thinks only two weeks of camping is a rip off. Its been a quiet year. We usually have. A serious fam reunion, but there's no aunt and uncle, sister, brother, or cousins this year. Our nephew is with us to play with x, but it's turning out that j, x, and C just end up ditching my weak tired self. I'm ready to go home and recuperate, but I'll settle for a shower... Or just the energy to wash my hair.
