Brain tumor patients and their families face many tough decisions, exhausting treatment, and periods of rehabilitation. In order to deal with the changes a brain tumor brings to one's life, the support staff at Cleveland Clinic's Taussig Cancer Institute and the Rose Ella Burkhardt Brain Tumor and Neuro-Oncology Center focuses on coping and healing.
We realize how difficult it can be when you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer. We are dedicated to helping you face the challenges associated with your diagnosis and treatment. Listed below are some of the patient support services and programs available through the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute.
In addition to the support services listed above, Cleveland Clinic has a number of support groups that are offered by both the Taussig Cancer Institute and the Burkhardt Brain Tumor Center. These groups can be great sources of information and may help patients and their families feel more at ease about their treatments and their feelings by meeting people who have had similar experiences.
If you or a family member is faced with a brain tumor-related diagnosis, obtaining a second opinion from a trusted source can help ensure that you make the decision that is right for you. Cleveland Clinic's Burkhardt Brain Tumor Center specialists offer expert remote second opinion consultations for many brain tumor-related diagnoses through our e-Cleveland Clinic program.
