Charlie Watson here from the Western Circuit in NZ.
I have Stage 4 Lung cancer and I still fly and ride my buggy. I don't get out so much but each ride is very special.
I am a member of a lung cancer support group and it is nice to spend time with others who are suffering the same thing as me. I thought it would be nice for kiters to have that same opportunity.
I am starting a facebook group for Power Kiters with cancer. Ther is no commercial agenda and I have no interest in kite politics. This group is somewhere for Power kiters with cancer or other terminal illnesses to Brag and moan and have a community of people going through the same thing.
There are currently 2 members but we have to start somewhere.
Here is the link http://www.facebook.com/groups/376106059108968/
This group is completely open but privacy can be tightened up if the majority think that is appropriate.
Please feel free to pass this on or post it or publish it. 10 members in the first year would be a reasonable target.
