Coping with Brain Cancer During COVID-19

In this challenging time dealing with COVID-19, should I delay my treatment, surgery or radiation therapy at the UCSF Brain Tumor Center? Are new patients being evaluated at the Brain Tumor Center? If I am no longer on treatment for my brain tumor, am I still considered at high risk for the virus?

This special edition webinar from the Living Well After Brain Cancer Treatment Webinar Series addresses these common questions and offers information on the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will also review how this may affect your treatment plan and the measures our clinic is taking to keep patients and the health community safe. It also addresses important ways you can keep yourself safe and what you can do to take care of your emotional well-being.

With Susan Chang, MD, Alexa Greenstein, FNP-C, Jane Rabbitt, RN, and Rosemary Rossi, MSW. 



For Patients and Families Affected by COVID-19

The UCSF Brain Tumor Center has also compiled a resource sheet with financial assistance and funding opportunities for patients and caregivers who have been affected by COVID-19. Many of the programs assist with medical insurance premium payments or offer a one-time payment if the patient or spouse has lost their job as a result of the pandemic.
