Brain Tumor Support Group
Methodist University Hospital
First Thursdays | 6:30pm

The Brain Tumor Support group is open to all those affected by brain tumors, including family members, friends, patients and caregivers. Meetings often feature a speaker to discuss treatment options, research, therapy and caregiving. Group involvement can help you strengthen family support and deal with feelings of isolation that come with facing a serious illness.
Meetings are free, but registration is requested. Those who are unable to come to the meeting may call in. Please contact volunteer coordinator, Cherry Welborn, at 901.757.0806 for registration and more information.
