Still looking for a support group

I'm a little disappointed in the resources HRRH has supplied.  I emailed a few people on their support group list that I could realistically get to, and NONE of them are still viable. 

I've tried to reach out to a few groups on here with no response.

I REALLY need to find a support group.  I will travel to Milton, Burlington, Brampton... Mississauga (depending on where). 

I thought I saw a group that met in Burlington on Saturday mornings. 

Can someone please help me find a group to join?

 

TIA!

Hi,

I will be having a coffee night in Mississauga soon. We meet at Tim's on Lakeshore in Clarkson. I'll set something up shortly and post on the board. :)

I would be interested in joining a support group in Mississauga.  I have only had 2 appointments so far.... But would love to meet people who have had the surgery, close to surgery, etc.  On a weekend maybe?

But thank you!

There is a great group that meets one saturday a month in north Burlington near Walkers Line and Dundas.  I think the next one will be around Feb 22nd and there is usually a message/reminder sent out about a week before.

Keep an eye out - see you there!

I think this is the one I've been trying to watch for.  I saw a message about it in Sept. but nothing since.  Do you happen to know any members of this group I can contact?
