Hi, my name is Pam. I am in the process of trying to put together a support group to meet monthly or every couple of months in the Kenosha area. Depending on where members live we can alternate different areas. This group would be for all ages, but, since this group is my age I thought I would post here also. I'm forming it for support, information & friendship. It can be formed any way since it isn't formed yet. I'd like it to be a casual group where everyone can be open & hopefully get their needs met. If anyone is interested, has questions or advice for me please feel free to message me. Thanks & feel well.

hi Pam - saw your message on this topic in another forum however didn't take time to respond over the holidays!

Now that I'm hibernating due to subzero temps outside, Ican get caught up. I live a little outside your target area but grew up in Racine and visit there at times. I would be happy to share what our local support group here has done over the years if you need ideas. Hopefully, this response also bumps the thread for others to see...
