On 1 June 2013, seven men with MS met in the conference room of the Murphy Creek Golf Course in Aurora, Colorado, to hold the first meeting of the 70/Four70 MS Men’s Group. The men discussed the impact of the disease on their lives, medications and related issues, and agreed to establish a monthly meeting to be held on the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 a.m. at the Murphy Creek Golf Course, 1700 S. Old Tom Morris Road, Aurora, CO 80018.
Sponsored by the CO-WY Chapter of the National MS Society, all men with Multiple Sclerosis are invited to these exclusively-for-men meetings. (See the “Meetings” page.)
For many years the group’s founding Facilitator also participated in the Denver MS Men’s Group, [see its blog] which meets at 11 a.m. on the second Monday of each month in a conference room at Bethany Lutheran Church at Dahlia and Hampden (4500 E. Hampden Avenue, Cherry Hills Village, CO 80113). All men with MS are also invited to that meeting.
Both Groups discuss all aspects of what it might mean to be a man — with the disease we have in common. In many instances the usual roles of husband/family member, employed individual or bread-winner, maybe even driver, have radically changed. In the open meeting atmosphere of mutual understanding and suggestions for coping, the men in these groups share what’s on their minds and how they’ve dealt with issues raised by others.
If you are a man with MS and at least 18-years of age, you already have a membership card, so please join us at either or both of these meetings.
