      Hi Linda, you can find those who are closest to you on the site by going to the people page, then use the search feature on the left side of the page and put in your zip code, you can find people who are closest to you, with whatever type of cancer you select in the search criteria.

      I am willing to talk with you, though I don't like that close to you, if you like we can talk by phone or skype.

      Hi, LindaD. I'm happy to talk. I live in California, though. That's fine with me but it sounds like you might prefer someone closer...? Whatever you'd like - just let me know.

      Hi Linda, I am willing to talk. I personally am having a double mastectomy wed 6/12. I have cancer of unknown primary. I was told by John Hopkins the tumor that they testing was very rare, something he had never seen. So what to do keep them or remove them. I will fight with myself for either decision. I live in Florida and not close by but would love to listen since we are going through similar situation. CANCER. JILL

      I would be willing to talk with you, but I live in Mount Vernon, WA so I wouldn't be available to talk in person. I can send you my email and/or phone number if you like. I have gone through a double mastectomy and two other surgeries to prep for the final reconstruction which is the implants I will be having put in on the 24th of June. I know that most of us would be willing to talk with you because we have been there done that and know what it is like to have been there and not have anyone close who understands what you are going through or how you feel. Even husbands as supportive as they can be cannot understand what we are going through mentally. So feel free to let lose and I am willing, like others, to listen.

      Hi Linda, Willing to talk/listen. at 43 I went through double mastectomy (one at a time), lymph node dissection, chemo, reconstruction with expanders and am doing great now. The amazing thing about this group is that you can post a question (any question, no matter how personal or embarrassing) and you'll usually get 5-20 answers from different people who have experienced similar things and who care. So, don't be shy about asking anything you are concerned about. We are all here to support each other, because we know what it is like in those first months, years! Thoughts are with you.

      Hi everyone, Thank you for your kind words! I would love to talk to all of you, near or far; not sure how we exchange emails or phone #'s though. If anyone here knows how to do that, please let me know. Thanks, Linda

      LindaJD, I believe that if you go to the persons wall you can post a message there to exchange phone numbers etc. Correct me if I a wrong Greg. He is the computer guru on this site. If anyone would know it would be him.
