Life changes after you have a brain tumor. We get it and have created somewhere for people to go to talk about it and get away. The Heads Up Conference is a unique program for brain tumor survivors ages 18 – 35 who are looking for answers and people to talk to who understand them. It is also a place for people to go to challenge themselves and relax in beautiful Montana. While we are there, we talk about careers, family, friends, dating, medical stuff and college issues (you don’t have to be in college or working to go).
