Sandy (aka Mudmar) is an acoustic neuroma patient and has been undergoing treatment since October 2010. Since her diagnosis she has undergone sugery and two radiation treatments, it has been a journey for us to discover the difficulty in treating this brain tumor. Fortunately, through the ANA Sandy found a local support group that provides an opportunity for networking where she can offer personal support for all acoustic neuroma patients - especially the newly diagnosed.
Your donation supports these local groups as well as the following patient-focused care programs including:
- Availability of patient information booklets on all aspects of acoustic neuroma pre- and post-treatment
- Access to our Willing to Talk list of other AN patients for networking
- Research on acoustic neuroma, most recently with the 2014 patient survey
