ity of their life. Survivors shared their efforts to re-define normal, both by developing coping mechanisms for dealing with the changes in their lives, including a renewed emphasis on faith and spirituality, and by identifying new avenues for remaining engaged and active in their communities, including support groups and church activities.

The ABTA recognizes the need to better understand the impact of this disease on survivors and their families and continues to explore research opportunities on survivorship and long-term effects of treating brain tumors.

“Funding research into the biologic and psycho-social characteristics of long-term survivors is imperative, and is an area we are collaboratively pursuing,” says ABTA Chief Mission Officer Deneen Hesser, MSHSA, RN, OCN. “Providing personalized information and support throughout the patient-to-survivor transition and thereafter is the essence of the American Brain Tumor Association’s mission.”

Information on the ABTA’s support services for patients and families is available at http://www.abta.org or 800-886-ABTA (2282).
