Chris is at a Halfway house

Hi group;

Here is an update on my boyfriend Chris. He was release from prison on Feb 18, 2011, He went to a halfway house that same day for treatment program The program is 6 months long, The guys are require to go to classes and go to meetings. They have to wear ankle bracelets so they wont leave. Chris gets fustratated at times. His parents and I agree this is the best place for Chris for now/ Good news is the place is in the same city and only 25 mins away but in a bad part of town. I dont drive there alone. NO WAY!! The sfaff is very nice and friendly. We try to visit him every Sunday for a few hours. We can bring him money, food and whatever he needs. He is a great guy. I love him very much. My sisters dont care for Chris and I dont care. People told me follow your heart. My sister NEVER meet Chris. Lets pray that Chris wont go to prison anymore. I think he learned his lesson this time. Thanks for the all the support. This group is great.
Thanks
Carole

    I have cancer

    34
    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
