ANAwareness Week 2016!!

ANAwareness Week is almost upon us!! Every year we have our own week in the spotlight as part of Brain Tumor Awareness Month. It runs the 2nd week in May, from Sunday the 8th until Saturday the 14th this year. Brain Tumor Awareness Month is well under way with several events having already taken place. It’s not too late however to get involved. Head on over to the Acoustic Neuroma Association website’s ANAwareness page and look for an event in your area. There you can also find treatment options, how you can donate, learn about support groups in your area, or even how to get press coverage on your Acoustic Neuroma experience.

ANA_iCanMay is also Better Hearing and Speech Month. Many of us with an Acoustic Neuroma suffer from hearing and speech issues. Now is the time to take action!! Educate those around you on the importance of early intervention into speech and/or hearing issues. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

If you need any help finding information, I strongly urge you to visit one of the websites listed below. You can also leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
