Brain Tumor Support Group
A neurological disorder or injury often presents many challenges including stress, fear of the unknown, loss of control, and communication difficulties. Support and education can offer tremendous assistance for both patients and family. Sharing with others in similar situations can provide valuable resources and support to help individuals cope with disorders or injuries and to deal with questions and concerns.
The Brain Tumor Support Group is open to individuals with brain tumors, their family members and friends. Participants have the opportunity to meet others in similar situations, discuss individual problems, ask questions and learn new information about a variety of topics. Please call (623) 205-6446 for more information.
Some meetings feature a guest speaker.
Dinner is provided by the hospital.
