Brain Tumor Support Group – Meet for the Mind

The next meeting of the Brain Tumor Support Group will be on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 10:00am. 

Cassie (Brain Tumor Nurse Navigator) and I hope that you can join us at our next brain tumor patient education and support meeting on Saturday, May 20 at 10:00 am. We are so happy to welcome Mary Peifer RN/LMT, who will present: Massage for People Living with Cancer. As always, we will be meeting at the INI Neurosurgery office (200 E Pennsylvania Ave, Peoria). We ask that you let us know if you’re able to attend so that we can plan accordingly.

We are planning to skip the formal education/presentation portion of support group for our July meeting and would like to propose that we have an informal social event (involving food) in its place. We will have more details coming, but please SAVE THE DATE for July 22.

Following that, the Mark Linder Walk For the Mind is held annually at the Peoria Riverplex along the riverfront. This will be held on September 30 at 9:30 am. For more information on this fabulous event, you can go to their website:

As always, we welcome your suggestions regarding topics/speakers for future events!
