Hello everyone. My name is Samantha, I'm 23 and living in New Orleans, La. I'm looking for other sleevers in the area that would be interested in maybe having a monthly meet up or something along their lines. I have created a group and hope that you join and we can use it as a tool of support and learning.

Thank you.

Hiya, Sammie. There's a northshore group of us who get together occasionally--and there are other sleevers in the metro area! I actually JUST met someone in person while shopping at Lakeside--we had communicated on this board and just happened to be in the same store and start a conversation. :-) Small world. Welcome to the board!

I'm all for anyone who's interested coming to these meet ups. I saw the group that meets on the northshore, but they seem to meet for lunch on week days a lot which is just something I won't be able to make. I also made a group so that it would be easier to talk to one and other and set up the meet ups.

Hopefully it will work out cause I know I would really like to meet some more sleevers.

Hey there. There have been a couple people I've connected with who live in New Orleans and has gone through the surgery. I have yet to meet anyone face to face but would love to be a part of the group. Are you on Meetup.com? I am also an organizer of a couple Meetup groups in the area: Couch 2 5K Meetup and NOLA Newbies Meetup...

I have searched around the meetup site hoping that there was something like this already in place and was sad when there wasn't. I would love to get something going on here and there.
