After a brain tumor diagnosis, you may wonder what your next steps are. Navigating your care can be difficult and overwhelming at first. Working with your team of healthcare providers and receiving resources from the American Brain Tumor Association can help you to understand.
The Care & Treatment section of our website covers topics such as treatment options, navigating and understanding the spectrum of care options, support, resources and information for caregivers.
Our Care Consultants are here to help. ABTA CareLine staff can assist you with a variety of resources, including general information about brain tumors and treatment, social support, and caregiving. Some topics, however, exceed our limitations. Please note the following:
Medical information: ABTA does not have medically trained professionals available to answer medical questions or offer medical advice. Questions of a medical nature that cannot be answered through ABTA resources (i.e., ABTA website or other reputable online sources) should be directed to medical professionals.
Financial assistance: The ABTA does not provide financial assistance of any kind. Please visit our website for a listing of financial aid resources offered by other organizations:
Treatment referrals: The ABTA does not rate or recommend healthcare practitioners or organizations, nor does it hold opinions on the quality of practitioners or providers. The only referrals CareLine staff make are to National Cancer Institute designated brain tumor treatment clinics. (((link to webpage when available)))
