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."

Scrooge Boerner speaker of the house

I've been up sleepless from steroids hearing that House speaker Boerner (rep) has delayed voting on whether or not bush tax cuts should comtimue past this week. Lack of passage could possible costing middle class families $1000s extra in payroll taxes and cuts in unemployment. Boerner's excuse for his last minute change? He says he's unwilling to vote for only a 2 month extension and revisit the both. Instead, he wants to decide after his holiday break, relaxing comfortably warm and fed while americans everywhere can continue their constant worry. This man pledged his vote to close voting for the house so people would be given for stability, to survive winter and he has the audicity to try to pull a bait and switch so he can hurry home to his comfy, warm home full of food. If this is, in fact, the worst congress ever, we know one of its leaders. Scrooge Boerner himself.

Hillary-I have been reading your blog for several years and thank you for sharing your experiences. My nephew is 2 years out of haply transplant and has relapsed. Late last week he also had a flare up of GVHD in his eyes. It is excruciating as you know. I'm writing to you to ask what the eye drop medicine you've previously discussed that is the best for gvhd in the eyes. I know it's expensive but just wanted to tell his parents about it. He is being treated at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and so far they have responded with increasing his prednisone dosage and giving him over the counter eye drops. Please tell me what you know from your experience on the best way to treat his eyes. Thank you so much. Kristy

Hillary, I just started reading your blog, inspired by your ability to live a full life with your family, and your advocacy of fair health care for everyone. Bah, Scrooge! Have we forgotten that our country will be judged by how it treats the least powerful among us? I hope your Christmas is blessedly peaceful - CT reader
