Thanks Candee,

Think I just might be able to make that one. Sounds interesting. :):)

Glad your with us, getting to be quite a few of us from Jersey, been thinking about a NJ Lung cancer support group, can't find a single one in the state. I got a couple numbers from Cancer Institute of NJ, I'm gonna give them a call and see what they say. They have support groups for breast ( of course), prostate, cancer in general, and even one for ****'s with cancer :shock: Now, don't get me wrong, I have nothing against that but in my mind there certainly needs to be one for LUNG CANCER. :x So anyway, I'm off and running, I'll post when I know more.

thanks again for the inf.

God bless and be well
