Some Housekeeping Notes!

MUSIC: "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"

OK, since I've started the theme of Christmas I thought I'd continue with another great song today...hope you enjoy it!

There's a couple of items I wanted to bring to the attention of especially new viewers of my site. Last night I was told about an individual whose father soon will undergo a nephrectomy or kidney surgery. She also is having difficulty in dealing with her father's illness and is looking for support. Just wanted her to know that she can get on our "live" chat most evenings at approximately 7:30pm ADT and usually one of us will be there. It's a great forum to ask questions and obtain information and just meet others who are in similiar situations and the best part is you get "instant" response - provided of course that someone is there. All you need do is type your first name into the "ANONYMOUS" area of the chat which appears at the top of the website, press "enter" and then begin typing your question, etc. If no one is there, just leave a message as to what time you will return and we'll try our best to be there!

Another item for everyone to note is tomorrow night's Live Webcast on the Kidney Cancer Canada website, here's the link

the topic will be "Managing the Emotional Side Effects of Kidney Cancer" and it will be a topic for not only cancer patients, but for us caregivers as well as family and friends to obtain support and information to help us better deal with obstacles we all encounter along our journey with cancer. In order to view the live webcast though, you must first register, as indicated when you access the above link. It's very easy to do and I'm sure you will find it very rewarding as well. First names only are fine to log into the webcast and it's completely anonymous, so no one else will be able to determine who you are.

OK...gotta run....if you have any questions, please send a message in any of the "Comments" area at the end of any post along with your email, and I will get back to you asap.
