This social network serves as a source of information, support and plain, good old-fashioned kindness through my father's five-year struggle and death from prostate cancer. The people from this group became my friends, a community in the real sense of the word. I never felt pressured to do or buy or contribute to anything, and received in return, kind words and warmth that I could not have done without. Kudos to the organizers, and may they win every award in the book. Thank you, and please do not hesitate to contact me for further information and commendation.
