Monthly Brain Tumor Support Conversations to Launch June 16

At Head to the Hill in the beginning of Brain Tumor Awareness Month, the National Brain Tumor Society announced the launch of Brain Tumor Support Conversations - a monthly, peer facilitated, online support group to further unite the brain tumor community, including patients, current and former care partners, loved ones, and stakeholders at all levels.

Facilitated by Adam Hayden and Lisa O'Leary, this support group will provide a safe space where patients and loved ones can talk about the feelings and emotions that are difficult to discuss with those who have not lived through any stage of the brain tumor experience.

Support conversations will be held on the third Sunday of each month at 7pm ET/4pm PT. Join us for our first conversation Sunday, June 16.
