Brain Tumor Support Groups

Many people find that talking with others who are in a similar situation can help with stress. It can also provide useful insight and refreshing perspectives. The Barrow Brain Tumor Support Group offers peer support for both survivors who have been diagnosed with a brain tumor and their caregivers who are helping them through this diagnosis.

Lanette Veres from the Gray Matters Foundation peer facilitates the survivor group. The caregiver group is facilitated by staff who work closely with brain tumor survivors and their caregivers.

The Brain Tumor Support Group is open to individuals with brain tumors, their family members and friends. Participants will meet others in similar situations, discuss individual problems, ask questions, and learn new information about a variety of topics.

Note: The Barrow Brain Tumor Support Group will resume meeting in person on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 7:30 PM in conference rooms 1 and 2 on the first floor (across from the cafeteria patio) at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center. We do not meet in May, November, or December.

Refreshments will be provided.
