Support Group

Neurofibromatosis Support Group

Led by:
Vee Vo

Open to patients, caregivers, family, and friends. This group is designed to provide mutual support and education to members who may feel a little less alone by meeting with others whose situations are similar to their own. Family support groups work in conjunction with a patient's medical treatment. No registration necessary, please just drop in! Refreshments will be provided.

At Stanford, we understand the complexity of a patient's medical need and offer support to patients with Neurofibromatosis. This group is designed to provide mutual support and education to members who may feel a little less alone by meeting with others whose situations are similar to their own. Family support groups work in conjunction with a patient's medical treatment.

The meetings are free of charge and are a great resource for patient and family education. The meetings consist of 20 minutes speaker presentation, 20 minutes patients' presentations of their own experiences, and open forum for discussion. Also, leading Stanford Neurosurgeon, Steven D. Chang, MD, will join for a Q&A session at the end of each meeting.
