Making Difficult Decisions

Brain tumors are incredibly unique and your specific diagnosis will determine what treatment options are available to you. It is important to know your exact tumor type, location, and other details of your diagnosis when choosing your course of treatment.

Options are available to patients and their caregivers as hospice care may need to be added to treatment.

When you are diagnosed, it can be difficult to explain the diagnosis, symptoms, and treatment to your friends and family.
