Acoustic Neuroma: A User's Guide
Sharing our Experiences in Living with an Acoustic Neuroma
Please join us for a group discussion on various treatment experiences and other health related issues that living with an acoustic neuroma can bring. Whether you are newly diagnosed or many years post-treatment, we welcome you to engage in this beneficial discussion regarding daily challenges as well as helpful tips, solutions and strategies.
FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION OR TO RSVP, PLEASE CONTACT:
Lauren Goldberg, Support Group Leader/Facilitator
Miranda Warren Sacharin, Support Group Leader/Facilitator
Lauren Goldberg, a post-treatment acoustic neuroma patient, and Miranda Warren Sacharin, family member/caregiver to a post-treatment acoustic neuroma patient, will facilitate the meeting.
Who should attend? Family members, caregivers, friends and interested persons are encouraged to attend.
Benefits of attending a local 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.
