Living Beyond a Primary Brain Tumor

Our relationship with you doesn’t end with treatment for brain cancer. At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center , we’re here to help you manage any complications you experience during and after treatment, or just to provide some support.  

Brain Tumor Support Group

Our support group for people with brain tumors can help you adjust to life after treatment.  Led by our social workers, nurses, and psychologists, these sessions give you an opportunity to learn from others’ experiences, exchange ideas, and seek support. Learn about upcoming meetings.

We’re committed to helping you in every way we can — physically, emotionally, spiritually, and otherwise — for as long as you need us. We’re also here for your family. Our Survivorship Center has support groups, follow-up programs, educational programming and materials, and more.

Plus, our Resources for Life After Cancer program offers individual and family counseling, lectures and support groups, and practical guidance on employment and insurance issues, among other services. 

Sometimes, you and your loved ones just need someone to talk to, someone who’s trained to help you make sense of your experience before, during, and after treatment for cancer.

Our Counseling Center offers both individual and group counseling sessions to help you and your family cope with your disease. These sessions can be a healthy, productive way to work through the stress and anxiety that are sometimes a part of treatment and recovery.

Medical treatments — things like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery — are often the best way to treat your cancer. Their whole purpose is to get you healthy again. But at MSK, we know that complementary services can also help soothe and heal not only your body but also your mind and spirit.

Our Integrative Medicine Service can be a valuable part of your formal treatment plan. Programs we offer include massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, meditation, visualization, music therapy, and nutritional counseling. Formal classes include yoga, tai chi, and chair aerobics.

Cancer and its treatment are a challenge for anyone, regardless of age. But if you’re over 65, you may face unique issues that only affect people in your age group. We’re committed to providing cancer patients of all ages with the treatment, facilities, and support they need.

Your treatment team will include healthcare professionals who have the specialized training and experience to effectively treat older patients. Every aspect of your care — diagnosis, treatment, recovery, support — will be tailored to meet your particular needs.
