The 10 of us that have UPSC (a rare aggressive recurrent uterine cancer) regularly 'talk' on the Uterine Cancer discussion board about getting together in the fall when about half of us will be coming out of treatment and think we'll be recovered enough to travel. I love the idea of meeting the wonderful women who are sharing this cancer journey with me, but wonder if it will really happen. Will we all have the money to travel across the country after our medical bills, and will we really be healthy enough to go? Does it ever happen? Do you know if any of the online communities try to get together and really pull it off? I see how close the 'regulars' are here. I would love to think that somehow, some way, you would all get to feel the warmth of a real hug from your cyber friends. The friendships are very real; the cyber hugs are very comforting, but I'd love to think that I will one day meet some of you face-to-face.
