Hello Todd and welcome. I started this site because I had such difficulty finding benign brain tumor survivors, like myself. I'm a long term survivor (but have many side-effects): diagnosed in 1985 at age 11. Besides connecting with survivors, we can exchange medical info, get support, etc. There is a Q & A with a neurosurgeon and a nutritionist under the Resources tab. Also there are many different groups such as religious discussions, migraines, seizures, depression and anxiety, etc. Thanks again for joining. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
