  • ANYONE FROM IOWA

    Hi, I'm newly diagnosed and living in Iowa and wondering if there's a support group anywhere around me. I live in Sioux City and I'm close to Omaha, NE, & Sioux Falls, SD.

    I'd like to hear from you if you're at all familiar with where I'm at.

    I JUST WISH I COULD FIND SOME RELIEF FROM THIS PAIN SO THAT I CAN CONTINUE TO WORK AND CONTINUING THIS FRONT THAT "EVERYTHING IS JUST FINE". IT'S VERY HARD FOR ME RIGHT NOW. eek
    Love from far away,
    Tracy K

    Hi,
    I know just where you live being a former Iowan. We still have family in central and eastern Iowa and we have best friends in NW Iowa. I don't know about support groups, but these dear friends of ours just had a preemie baby at Avera McKennen Hospital in Sioux Falls. From what I hear this area is very good in medical care, it is very possible that there is something there. Also Omaha has good medical care. I would look at both places. Good Luck to you.
