Who is a survivor?
A person and their family are considered survivors is a survivor from the day of diagnosis.
Why have a survivor program?
The impact of a brain tumor diagnosis does not stop when treatment stops. Although survivors have always known this, it took the professional community much longer to move beyond treatment and focus on the lasting impact. They continue to research the medical, cognitive and social impact of the diagnosis and treatment. Our survivor program wants to ensure that this information is available to survivors and the people they encounter on a day-to-day basis. We also want to provide support and advocacy in each step of the survivorship process. The most important part of the survivor program is to help each survivor figure out what that means to them and to assist them in reaching their goals.
