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."

Taking a PET Scan Peek

Like it? Check out cafepress for more
or email moi:
I'm hoping to get healthy enough again to do more activism! It always makes me feel empowered, and I need all the power I can get.
It turns out, I probably had a virus since X stayed home from school today. I was defiantly anemic. I had a kidney infection too. I've been a minor train wreck, but I'm doing pretty well.
I'm getting a PET scan tomorrow partly due to the kidney infection that I shouldn't have.
The thing came out of nowhere!
My last PET scan, the one that looked mostly clean except for a line of nodes around that same right kidney, was read differently among my specialists.
Two out of three agree. . . . it was probably cancer with some regrowth alongside the remission.
I like the third Doc's opinion best so I took his. HE said it was likely a virus.
Since I'm having problems, we're taking a peak tomorrow.
Also Happening tomorrow is NH Executive Councils vote to accept a $333,000 Exchange Planning Grant. Pray, write letters, email, call. It'd be silly to refuse this grant with no federal payback strings attached and no commitment to do anything with the study information in the future.
It's an opportunity to research what would be the best insurance marketplace for NH citizens in the future.
Knowledge is power. I'd snatch this opportunity up.
For more knowledge, There is also an economic summit that is open to the public in Concord this Thurs. Experts are coming in to explain what is necessary within the budget and why.
