      Jerry,

       

      This sounds great.  I know so many people could benefit from this but are unable to attend in person.  Do you know if there is audio available after the event?

        Would love to go Jerry but can only afford one trip from Montreal in a short time frame, sounds very interesting….attended a workshop this weekend in Plattsburgh. Lo and behold, one of the cancer survivors has a sister who has just had SNB and waiting for results.  She asked about my pin that you generously gave me, wanted to buy one for her sister…sob sob, I just had to give her mine…it was a tough decision but I feel good about it.  Val
