Brain Tumor Patient and Family Resource Guide

We recognize that the diagnosis of a brain tumor can affect your life in many ways — both emotionally and physically — as well as the lives of the family and friends who care for you. We have compiled a guide of resources to help you better cope with your condition. Here you can find information for yourself, as well as for your family, friends and caregivers, on topics such as brain tumors, legal resources, prescription assistance, information for parents with cancer and information for caregivers. We hope this guide provides you with some comfort and support during this difficult time.
