      Carl, you can register at the door if you need to. Pre-registration is preferred so we can plan on food, but we understand that sometimes things change with our health.

        I would love to come but can’t stay all day. Is this ok? I have never been to one of these discussions. Just want to come and listen in.

    My husband and I are very excited to attend. I had my stem cell transplant on September 15, 2016 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
