Brain Tumor Support Group

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 through this diagnosis.

Each group is led by a peer facilitator (a survivor or a family caregiver) who understands the challenges you may be facing. Some meetings feature a guest speaker.

Peer facilitators are Lanette Veres from the Gray Matters Foundation and Anne Bothwell.

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.

Dinner is provided by St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.
