When initially diagnosed, few patients have a clear idea of where to turn in their selection of a qualified medical professional for treatment of their tumor or the questions to ask. Please join us for a group discussion to help prepare you for your acoustic neuroma journey and feel more confident in the treatment you choose, as well as specialists that can provide post-treatment therapies and rehabilitation. We will also discuss tips to help you make the most of your doctor appointments, so you can be actively engaged and communicate effectively with your health care team.

Who should attend? Family members, caregivers, friends and interested persons are encouraged to attend.
Benefits of attending a local support group include communicating in a nurturing, non-judgmental environment with others who have shared a common acoustic neuroma experience; sharing information on dealing with specific problems, educational opportunities about the latest acoustic neuroma topics of interest; and providing emotional support to all patients, both pre- and post-treatment. This helps in reducing the isolation and loneliness that many acoustic neuroma patients feel.
