Several times a year, BrainWAVE families have the opportunity to meet and relax through fun activities such as trips to sports events, historical sites and other family attractions. These free events give all members of the immediate family a welcome break from treatments and doctors' visits.
All activities are planned and organized by volunteers on the BrainWAVE Committees.
