LONG BRANCH, NJ, June 18, 2008 –Every year in the United States, more than 200,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumor. There are over 120 different types of brain tumors, which can be malignant or benign, though either type can be just as serious or life threatening. Although brain tumors can cause profound physical and cognitive impairments, medical research and treatment options are offering greater results and hope for patients diagnosed with a brain tumor.
To help support spouses and partners who have lost their loved ones to a brain tumor, The David S. Zocchi Brain Tumor Center at Monmouth Medical Center has established a new monthly support group entitled “Journey of Hope: Bereavement Support Group.” The first meeting of the new support group will be held on Tuesday, July 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the hospital, 300 Second Avenue in Long Branch.
For more information on the support group or the David S. Zocchi Brain Tumor Center at Monmouth Medical Center, call
