Unable to attend? Guest lecturers are occasionally invited to speak at the support group meetings on topics that are relevant to patients with brain tumors and their caregivers. Recordings of the talks for caregivers are available here and recordings of the talks for patients can be found here.


Looking for individual support?

Our Neuro-Oncology Survivors' Peer Support Program connects current patients with a brain cancer survivor, or someone who is further along in their treatment, for peer-to-peer support.

Similarly, our Caregiver Connection Program matches caregivers for peer-to-peer support.
