Participants include patients, family members and friends. Typically meetings begin with brief introductions and updates followed by participants talking informally about individual issues or experiences, asking questions, and sharing resources. Our unique format allows the entire group to meet during the first hour and then we separate into two groups for the second hour: a brain tumor patients’ group and a caregivers’ group. Guest speakers may also be invited to give presentations or answer questions on relevant topics such as new treatment methods, research, coping skills, insurance, and numerous others.
