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.
  • If you are looking for more immediate support, we encourage you to register for the Virtual Support Group or join the Closed Facebook Support Group. Thank you.

Here is just a small summary of my adventure last year.
