Brain Tumor Guidance and Coaching

The emotion, confusion, and shock that overwhelms a newly-diagnosed brain tumor patient is second-to-none. Finding guidance and information, or getting answers to your questions is quite a challenge, whether they're right at diagnosis or at another stage in life. National Brain Tumor Society has worked with patient advocates, survivors, and healthcare experts to create our Brain Tumor Experience, an online resource to help you find the right options and navigate challenges, no matter what stage of the brain tumor experience you're currently in.

Each month in Connections, we'll highlight a section to focus on that will benefit new and existing members of the community. If you'd like to the view the entire resource now, click here.
