Thank you for your message and the link. I do visit this site very often because I feel a very strong connection to people here. I do not post, but I read a lot and it gives me comfort. I am still struggling with accepting the loss of my mother to this decease - after more than 9 months. My doctors' opinions is this is not the right thing and I need to get over it and move on. I lost both parents to cancer, so I am taking the time I need. I am sorry I do not post anything and yes, I am aware and been advised to take part in raising awareness, which I do among my friends and colleagues, but not yet in a more public capacity like attending an event, speaking or fund raising. I know that I need to take a further step in this direction.
Best wishes to all and thank you letting me to be part of this board.
