Support Group

Meningioma Support Group 

Join us to learn about the latest treatment options, network with other meningioma patients, and find encouragement and support. Family members, caregivers, friends and interested persons are encouraged to attend.

The meetings are free of charge and co-moderated by meningioma patients. They consist of 20 minutes of speaker presentation, 20 minutes of 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.


Benefits of attending a local support group include:

  • Communicating in a nurturing, non-judgmental environment with others who have shared a common meningioma experience.
  • Sharing information on dealing with specific problems, overcoming handicaps, and reassuring others that better times lie ahead.
  • Educating and informing each other about the latest meningioma topics of interest.
  • Providing emotional support to all patients, both pre- and post-treatment.
