Pennsylvania GISTers gathered for lunch on November 14, at The Cheesecake Factory in King of Prussia. One new person joined the group, Linda Volkening, who was able to meet others, for the first time, who could empathize with what she has been going through for many years. Also in attendance were (left to right) Rachel Glass (my future mother-in-law), Esther Trout (my mom), me, Kim Hoffman (wife of GISTer, Mike Hoffman), and Linda Volkening. We had a fantastic lunch and had a great time getting to know each other. We hope to meet again soon! We only wish more people would take advantage of meeting others and receiving support from others who know a lot about what they are going through.
