The ANA turns 40 this year!

The ANA was founded in Carlisle, PA in 1981 by Virginia Fickel Ehr. After having surgery for the removal of an acoustic neuroma in 1977, she resolved that future acoustic neuroma patients should have easy-to-read medical materials about their condition, as well as support and comfort from other patients.

While not quite as common, younger adults do get diagnosed with acoustic neuroma. And some things that younger adults often deal with in life - starting marriages, building careers, having and raising young children, etc., can be more complicated or difficult with an AN. We have resources to help you!

Thank You to ANA Volunteers for Making a Difference in 2020!

ANA volunteers do amazing things. They set up fundraising events, write newsletter articles, facilitate Zoom meetings, provide patient and caregiver support, moderate social media pages and the discussion forum, serve on our board of directors, present during patient events and so much more! They make the people who interact with them think, “I want to do that.” They reach out and educate others, or they reach inward and work towards a personal goal. No matter the capacity in which they serve, one thing is clear - our volunteer community is amazing!
