    Hi @CatLyn - & good evening to you too. Sorry for all you've been through with pancreatic cancer & chemo, & because critically vulnerable this has added to your sense of isolation. This pandemic has impacted so many, & for you this must have been awful. This group is both friendly & supportive, so thank you finding & joining us all. I'm sure you'll enjoy chatting with our members, & do please join in with any discussions of interest, & visit our virtual 'Coffee lounge;' a great place to get to know others. :)
