I live in a suburb of Dallas, Texas.
This weekend I will accompany a friend of mine to visit a friend of his who had open surgery Wednesday.
A couple of men, including one I did not know previously, helped me a great deal prior to and just after my surgery by sharing their experiences and answering questions.
If any of you have a friend or relative with prostate cancer who lives in the DFW area that you think would benefit from having a coke or coffee some time with a fellow PC patient, email me at danrplano@yahoo.com and I would be happy to get in touch.
Finally, if any of you live in the area and would like to meet for a coke sometime, give me a shout.
