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."

Me, pondering the harder decisions in life. Dec. 2008
My body has revolted. It has ruined three perfectly good immune systems causing me years of frustration and pain. 

Now this body knows what it wants. 
It wants a change. 
It wants a whole new fresh approach. 
It wants an anti-body conjugate inhibitor with an aurostatin chemowarhead directed precisely at my cancer, no where else.
 It wants SGN- 35.
 It wants to get back to NYC.    
It wants.......  The yankees!!                
I've done a 360 in these past 5 years. Now, I am back with NYC. I moved out Aug 2004 and couldn't stay away.  
I'm back for treatment there  every 3 weeks, back in town with my friends from college, The Model UN.
 Maybe this will help me throwback and remember all the good times I had.  
It's on, today mom and I head the NYC and treatment tomorrow.
 I feel confident.
