Brain Tumour Support Groups help survivors, family and caregivers through their journey with a brain tumour in a number of ways:

  • Providing connections with others who have faced life with a brain tumour thereby offering reassurance, reducing feelings of isolation and reinforcing a positive, hopeful attitude.
  • Sharing practical information to:
    • Help make informed decisions about brain tumour treatment options;
    • Learn about relevant community resources;
    • Enhance coping skills in order to reduce anxiety, feelings of loss of control and fear of the unknown, changes in family roles, and financial strain as a result of a brain tumour diagnosis.
       

 In April 2017, the support group attended an evening about Brain Cancer hosted by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Find out more about this event.

An MRI revealed a grade IV atypical meningioma on Pablo’s brain.
