Grateful Patient Review

I just wanted to make the time to THANK everyone who has helped to make these Brainstorm seminars possible. Whether it was your time donated to planning these events, your monetary donation, your time speaking at these events ….They have helped to make my life as a brain tumor patient and caregiver for my mom so much better. I have learned better ways of talking to my kids, how to handle insurance and financial issues, how to be a better caregiver, the importance of having a will and directives ready, and how to try to get back into the workforce through help from the DVRS. (I’m sure I have forgotten some other wonderful seminars..but having short term memory deficits I have a good excuse As a brain tumor survivor there are so very many challenging issues to deal with besides a terminal illness. These seminars have enabled me to face so much more with having more knowledge, resources, and support and friendship. Thank you is too simple a phrase for all the many ways you have all made my life better
