The meeting will be facilitated by Hazel Berman, a post-treatment acoustic neuroma patient.

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.

Hazel, I am in Antelope.  Are there any meetings closer to North Sacramento?  My one vestiblular was removed fully along with the auditoty and facial nerve on the right side in 2001 and
i am dealing with constant headaches I thought were caffeine headaches, my balance seems to be getting worse, We have eliminated all my extra meds, most of which symptomatically caused dizziness, and it's still hard to get up without always watching that
i have something to grab.  I am looking for any kind of therapy or natural solutions from anyone.

Hi pbjoneal172,

Thanks for your inquiry about the Sacramento support group - currently this is the only ANA support group in the Sacramento area.  If you would like to receive notifications about upcoming meetings for this group as well as information about headaches and balance, please contact ANA.  We can also put you in touch with other ANA volunteers that have experienced these issues. 

I hope this is helpful -
Melanie Hutchins
Manager of Volunteer Programs
