Baylor College of Medicine: The Pituitary Partner Program

The BCM Pituitary Partner Program pairs new patients with former patients whose conditions and therapies are similar. There is no cost to participate in the program. It is simply our way of making sure patients feel assured, informed and supported throughout the entire experience.

Consent forms are signed by all participants before any contact information is shared. Once a match is made, the volunteer will be notified of a new patient's interest. We then share contact information with bothindividuals and communication is arranged by the participants.

Cleveland Clinic: Support Group

Cleveland Clinic's Rose Ella Burkhardt Brain Tumor and Neuro-Oncology Center is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art medical and surgical treatments for patients with brain tumors. We also realize you may have other concerns about how this illness may affect your family, your job or your ability to carry out other daily activities. You are not alone. In the past, we have found our Brain Tumor Support Group to be helpful in dealing with these concerns.
The Support Group provides the opportunity to share experiences and to socialize with others in similar situations. Nurse practitioners assist the group, provide information and answer questions regarding treatments, medications, available resources and other important issues.

Cleveland Clinic, Taussig Cancer Institute (Building R)
Conference Room R3-027 on the 3rd floor.
The fourth Wednesday of the month from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
