Hi!    Is this the Worcester meeting group?    I am coming up for the meeting next Sunday at the brunch.    I'm flying up from DC/Baltimore and staying around Boston.   Is there anyone I can get a ride from?   I can meet you at Rte 128 Waltham Exit or wherever you think best.   I'll be staying just off Mt Auburn st. in Watertown.

Mei Mei ~

No, the Western Massachusetts Support Group meets in Chicopee, Massachusetts.  The Worcester brunch (held in April and October) is strictly a social event.  No speakers or demonstrations, just good food (all you can eat) and a chance to share experiences as well as meet those you've corresponded with via the ANA website forums.  I'll be there with my wife, the lovely and gracious Tina.  See you then!

4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
