Brain Cancer Action Week - Community Awareness and Information Forum

Friday 6 May, 9:30 - 3pm, Cancer Council Victoria, 615 St Kilda Road, Melbourne

Living with a diagnosis of a brain tumour presents many challenges - both practically and emotionally. A brain cancer diagnosis can cause fatigue, changes to memory and speech, and presents an array of challenges relating to every-day life including work, finances and body image.

This forum on 6th May 2016 is to provide information and strategies through presentations and discussions with experts in the brain cancer field. It is free and open to patients, carers, or anyone interested in learning more about brain cancer.
