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.)

Thanks Peter
Thanks for removing the hostile hand slapping posts recently appearing on this forum.  Its been a long time since I was spoken to as if I were a little child.  And it was really upsetting.  This forum is important to me and I read it every day.  I learn things that help me deal with having prostate cancer.  I don't think its a place for adults to be reprimanded.  Being prostate cancer patients is enough to deal with.  It was really getting out of hand.  Thanks again for a wonderful forum.
