Acoustic Neuroma Support Group

Group Name: Acoustic Neuroma Support Group

Description: The Acoustic Neuroma Association of Canada is a patient-headed, peer support group. It is an incorporated, registered, non-profit organization recognized as such by Canada Revenue Agency. Many individuals who face and undergo removal of acoustic neuromas have questions, concerns and physical and emotional adjustments.

People diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma and their loved ones, often find help through the educational nature of an acoustic neuroma support group. This is a gathering of people wishing to share information and experiences, as well as to learn from medical professionals. Within the safety of a support group, many people are able to share their past experience, their fears and concerns about the future and the day-to-day challenges they face.
