      Hello there,

      I am newly diagnosed and getting up to speed here. This webinar would have been interesting, and would loved to have seen it. Do they ever record them or have such things available for playback anywhere on this site? Are videos made and put onto YouTube or anywhere else?

      Please let me know when you can. I'm 48 and otherwise very healthy. Had my enucealtion just 6 weeks ago, and now with pathology in, finally know what I am faceing. So far it has not spread, so looking for mind/body preventatives would be right up my alley.

      Thanks for any help you can give me.
