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."

After weeks of exhaustion to the point I could barely keep my eyes open for more than an hour (not anyway to live a life) and discomfort from everywhere, I'm finally in the hospital. There's been something wrong with me, but nothing so serious that I could put my finger one. When I finally started with a sore throat (viral) than a dry cough that turned in hours to a phlemgy productive cough. I don't mess with my lungs. I certainly don't mess with pneumonia. I was in the hospital in an hour or to getting ready for my vanco and zosyn iv cocktail. Thank goodness I can take those. They're big gun broad spectrum leaving no bacteria unkilled medications. Its great I got them yestErday, before I thought I was really sick (my family thought I hit really sick weeks ago) because today I'm hacking worse. Had I waited I'd been at home miserable, probably with the shakes, not wanting to move. I'd have to get "helped" out of my house. But I'm not. I'm here! And I'll be great for Christmas! Wanted to have jewlery sales but my body decided no. I have lots at The Java Cup, even $5 deals. Check it out and get a great cup of coffee or maybe you can see me sunday? We'll see.

Hey Hillary ~ It's been a very long time since I've touched base with you but you have been on my mind for weeks now!

It's Anne-Marie. Yeah, I know, you're probably saying, "Who?!" I'm a former colleague of Allen's from BSC.

Although you may be in the hospital now, it will be my holiday wish and prayer for you to be able to be home and feeling healthy with your family, and in particular your son, on Christmas day.

With loving best wishes for a warm and wonderful holiday,
