The ABTA maintains a nationwide listing of brain tumor support groups, cancer groups that welcome brain tumor survivors, caregiver/spouse support groups and grief (bereavement) support groups.
If you aren't able to attend a support group in person, try Connections, the ABTA's Online Support Community. Connections is a more private setting where members can ask questions of their peers, provide updates on their personal situations and gain confidence in and comfort through talking with others who may be traversing a similar brain tumor journey.
Questions? Call our CareLine at (800) 886-2282 to speak with one of our caring professionals or email us at ABTACares@abta.org.
Are you a brain tumor patient, survivor, or caregiver looking for one-on-one support?
