Support Groups

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.

Cleveland Clinic's Rose Ella Burkhardt Brain Tumor and Neuro-Oncology Center is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art medical and surgical treatments for patients with brain tumors. We also realize you may have other concerns about how this illness may affect your family, your job or your ability to carry out other daily activities. You are not alone. In the past, we have found our Brain Tumor Support Group to be helpful in dealing with these concerns.

The Support Group provides the opportunity to share experiences and to socialize with others in similar situations. Nurse practitioners assist the group, provide information and answer questions regarding treatments, medications, available resources and other important issues.
