I was contacted by Lara Borowski at Stanford University for my work in UsTOO. They are opening a free workshop for cancer patients with the following criteria:

1>A primary cancer that has been in remission but has recurred.

or

2> Has survived 2 cancers.

Here is the link for information:

The contact is Lara Barowski
(650) 724-1226

If you meat the criteria it might be interesting...
