Am an amateur artist and writer. Run (volunteer) a memoir workshop at the local area senior center. Used to love doing needlework before getting nerve damage in my fingers. Love to read - mostly fiction. As a cancer survivor, I have a whole new positive attitude about myself, my surroundings, life in general, and those I love. Life is too precious to miss a single moment of it to anger or resentment. The occasional "poor me" thought gets batted down pretty quickly.

Am a 69 yr old woman five years into being a cancer survivor. I have a urostomy (ilial-sp?- conduit), and would like to meet others who have the same, to share ups and downs, to help others with moral support and get same from them, and to discuss "how did you manage..." type things.
