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 again! I huffed, I puffed, and got published in the Huffington Post. A piece I wrote about coping with the loss of beauty and aging by not placing such a significant value on women's superficial attributes made the cut. It was featured in yesterdays "womens" section. See it at While you're there I'd love to start accumulating some fans. Please hit the red heart button to get my writing and so we can chat openly via the post regarding my ideas. If you don't like me THAT much yet but like the piece, please at the very least, send it around, blow up the blogosphere, share it on facebook. You know what to do!

You continue to amaze. You are truly beautiful inside and out, even though you may look differently now.I found your blog either directly or indirectly through the Hodgkin's webmagic forum and have been "following you for quite a while. You have a fan and Hodgkin's survivor who is out there laughing, crying, and praying with and for you, even though I don't comment.
