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."

Whoa, cankle

Whoa, check out the +2 pitting edema, or major swelling that sticks in place when I push it, on my right ankle, only my right. Swelling can signify heart failure but my left side is fine. I haven't peed out all the fluids from my stent replacement Friday. I have no other symptoms other than my kidney still hurts, I can't pee much and I have to do it often. I'm relieved to see Dr. O tomorrow bc I don't know where to fix myself from here. When I don't know where to go, just call tenacious Dr. O!
