Speakingofhope.com was created by Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists to extend the reach of our support group, the Partnership of Hope. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, our online forum can be a valuable source of information and support. Whether you want to research and compare treatment methods or just share your story with other patients, we encourage you to join our online community.

The Partnership of Hope was created in 2012 when ANS was approached by a patient’s wife, who described her journey through the process of her husband’s battle with a brain tumor. Here at ANS we have always had the belief that hope is the most important trait to keep when facing struggles with health problems. With hope, along with the best medical care team, miracles of healing can occur. When we discussed this belief, we decided to create a “Partnership of Hope” that aligns the patient and the doctor with one common goal, which is a cure – and if a cure is not possible, the hope to face the illness with strength, dignity, and peace. The Partnership of Hope group gets together each month to exchange personal stories about individual journeys through their illness. The group is truly a support group and when we get together we talk, cry, eat, but mostly we laugh and enjoy each other as people, not an illness. We celebrate each life, not each disease. Each month we have a guest speaker who brings the group a fun way to face the struggles of fighting an illness. We welcome you to our support family and invite you each month to share with us all your life, struggles, and belief in hope…

Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists invites you to join the Partnership of Hope, our monthly support group that meets the fourth Thursday of every month. Please call our dedicated brain tumor support hotline at 855-267-2667 to answer any questions about the group or to attend the next monthly gathering.
