My name is Isabel and I was diagnosed with an inoperable oligodendroglioma (oliga) brain cancer on March 1st, 2003 at the age of 4. I’ve endured thousands of seizures since I was diagnosed, which inspired the formation of the support group, Brain Cancer/Tumor Survivors Coming Together. In my own experience it was difficult to find a place where I felt safe to share my own story. Especially since life changes everyday, and new obstacles constantly arise.
My goal of this support group is to create a welcoming environment in which everyone is able to share their own journey and feel safe. This is a non-professional setting that meets virtually once a month for those 18 and over. We encourage the building of friendships and life long bonds. It is about us coming together because we are indeed survivors.
