The meeting will be facilitated by Allison Shaffer and Michelle Nemeth, post-treatment acoustic neuroma patients.

Who should attend? Family members, caregivers, friends and interested persons are encouraged to attend.

Benefits of attending a support group include communicating in a nurturing, non-judgmental environment with others who have shared a common acoustic neuroma experience; sharing information on dealing with specific problems, overcoming handicaps and reassuring others that better times lie ahead; educating and informing each other about the latest acoustic neuroma topics of interest; and providing emotional support to all patients, both pre- and post-treatment. This helps in reducing the isolation and loneliness that many acoustic neuroma patients feel.
