So far, no...hard to have the knowledge, but glad I can be proactive.
My participation with FORCE
Knowing that there are others out there that are 'Facing our Risk'. Sometimes, I tell people of my upcoming surgery and they do NOT get it. Here, we ALL get it!
Please contact me if I can be of any help to you!
