Whether you’re living with a brain tumor or brain metastases, or care about someone with these diseases, Sharp HealthCare offers support groups to share experiences and tips with people who understand what you are going through.
At Sharp Memorial's Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute, attendees are divided into two groups — one for patients and one for family members/caregivers — to address each group's individual needs. They are facilitated by a licensed clinical social worker and a medical social worker. Light refreshments will be served.
Various topics are covered each month and registration is required prior to attending.
To register and to find out if this support group is right for you, please contact the program manager by providing your name and email address in the "Learn More" box. You will be contacted within two business days.
Free parking is available for this support group in the parking structure on Health Center Drive. Please bring your parking ticket to the meeting and it will be validated by the group facilitator.
