And I thought I was going to have to go start my own one-person forum there for a minute! LOL
There are so many folks who are great (throughout every forum in HealingWell - including each and every mod) - and so many who are knowledgeable here about prostate cancer and whoever does come in will have my support, and especially to Mama B: You have the sweetness to tame the beasties and have been through all the struggles that we face and those coming in will face. You're just a natural day-brightener for those dark days, chirping along as you create links and tie all the pieces together.
As all of us feel, this forum is the best amongst them all (thanks Peter! - and I've linked to you from my own new cancer blog and sub-site.)
