Merilee, the good news is that we will bring some of the educational aspects to you right here on Connect. The speaker sessions will be video taped and the videos will be posted here. I realize it’s not the same as people in person, but it’s still something. And we’re always here online to talk.

@cheris, I’m so sorry to hear about your sister. I know you love her very much. Reading your past messages, I believe she was expecting the arrival of a new grandchild a few months ago. Was she able to meet and hold that little bundle of joy?

)shortshot80) Colleen, Sorry I am unable to travel that far, will have to see it on here. Had to see a skin doc today. He thinks I have skin cancer on my forhead. Took a biopsy and will let me know in a week. If so surgery will be in order. Perhaps I can a forhead “lift”? raise my eyebrows? something like that maybe. Thought that counts, right? Still haven’t heard from my cancer doc, guesss I will have to call. Nancy

We are trying to change the face of lung cancer in Atlanta. Possibly next Mayo 2018 we will have a race set up with Delta so people
can run the Pemberton Trail in peace?

Thanks Colleen…we will be watching for the videos. Kay and I are keeping Linda and Jerry in our thoughts and prayers. Kay is progressing well…latest PET shows “stability” with little or no tumor growth. We are truly blessed. She will meet her new Mayo oncologist (dr Lou) in Jacksonville on November 6.
Thanks for all that you and the Wortman’s do for Lung Cancer Awareness!
