Hi there,

I am hoping to find a friend or two to correspond with, I have access to email and phones. I have recently been treated for cancer and for now it is under control. Surviving that has had me feeling that I want more out of life, I don’t receive much mail nor write a lot though I have plenty of time to do so with the prison having limited movement due to covid.
