Don't feel alone. I'm a 21 year old survivor of ALL, and it's my first time too. What do you think of this site? I'm currently on a team to make it more geared towards youth survivors ( I volunteer for the ACS), so any suggestions would be greatly welcomed!

Hi all,
Did you know that there is a very active discussion group for long term survivors of childhood/adolescent cancers at www.ACOR.org? Click on the mailing lists and scroll down to the LT-Survivors group and you can join in with over 300 survivors of childhood/adolescent cancer.
Recently I got to represent our group at a conference sponsored by ACS in Washington,D.C. and got to meet many of our members and also find new members for our group. So if you are out there, feeling alone and would like to meet other survivors please come join us.
Best wishes,
Linda Zame
zame@earthlink.net feel free to write to me directly if you have questions
