RIP to the Baldy Blogger, the award-winning, brave Adrian Sudbury who died in his sleep last night.
Adrian did more than anyone to demonstrate the validity of blogging as an activity.
His online testimony of his illness helped to demystify the medicalese surrounding leukaemia and cancer in general.
And his selflessness in sharing his experiences, and explaining and contextualising them for the lay person, is some feat given that he was suffering a terminal illness.
He died at the age of 27. But he achieved more than most people do in three times long a life.
Baldy blogger, RIP.
