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."

Revlomid: here I come

Again, I did it. I fought off high dose long term steroids for too long, since Dec. 11, made myself miseralble and finally am taking the 60mg I need to eat and digest without everything flowing out. It's a fruitless battle. I hope it's not the only fruitless battle. I hope people have gained fonts of knowledge from my experience, if nothing else. But I think I'm coming round for more: revlomid here I come.

Oh, Hilary. I just got onto your blog after moving and caught up. My heart just aches for you, you tough, tender lady. You are a trooper. X is lucky to have you and will never forget your loving care. Take care, and thanks for sharing. Marleigh
