Second Cup Coffee Group

Yesterday afternoon I was off to meet with the Second Cup coffee group. I wasn’t sure if anyone would be there with Easter coming up. But when I got there H was already sitting there reading the paper ... how nice. We chatted for a bit and then T came by. That really made me happy.

My goal in getting this coffee group together was to have cancer people connect, where we can speak freely about cancer. I’ve often heard cancer folk say; I feel bad for my family and want to give them a break from talking about cancer woes. To be honest, I find it hard to get cancer people out for coffee; however I think I’m making progress.

T asked if it would be ok to invite a gym buddy of hers who`s a cancer survivor. I said absolutely, that would be great. 

I’m afraid we might run out of the soft and easy chairs at the Second Cup ... but that would be a good thing.
