Brain Power Hour


Our Brain Power Hours are Brain Tumor Survivor 'meet-ups' that serve as an opportunity for our brain tumor survivors to informally get together on a monthly basis. Whether you are 30 years out from your cancer diagnosis, activiely being treated, preparing for brain surgery, having annual scans or anything in between. We are here for you. These gatherings give our survivors time to share stories, similar experiences, offer and ask for necessary input from someone that has been through a similar challenge. We do this in a fun environment and hope to build relationships and new friendships along the way! And caregivers are always welcome to join!




If you are a brain tumor survivor and not receiving our updates, please send an email to mercedes@drmarnierose.org.
