Patients and caregivers welcome. During our First Monday's program, we have a brain tumor support group.  There is a light meal served from 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. and then the individual support groups begin.

Vouchers are provided for free parking. If the 1st Monday falls on a holiday then the meeting is held on the 2nd Monday of the month. Caregivers are welcome to attend the brain tumor support group or we have a separate caregiver support group. Children are welcome to attend the "Children of Parents with Cancer Support Group" led by a child-life specialist from IU Health Riley Hospital for Children.

We have an open discussion and participation is optional, but encouraged. We sometimes have an art therapist available for a small project or musical therapist.
