Grey Coat Society Support Group- TBA
Our Grey Coat Society is made up of so many amazing individuals from the SW Missouri area. We all come from different walks of life but the one thing that ties us together is we all have or know of someone who has been diagnosed with a benign brain tumor.
Life looks a bit different for some of us but with the love and support of one another, we find the strength to keep fighting. During this virtual support group, Team A.N.A. 417's founder, Jennifer Miller, will talk about her own personal experience of finding out she had a benign brain tumor at the age of 20. Leaving her with single-sided deafness, facial paralysis, crippling headaches and balance issues. 13 years into her fight, each day is different and she will talk about why that is challenging yet liberating.
Guest Speaker: Dr. Mark VanEss, ENT specialist through Mercy Clinic in Springfield, MO, will talk in depth about hearing loss due to a benign brain tumor and living life with single-sided deafness.
Open Forum- this event will be an open forum to share your story, your struggles, your questions, your frustrations, etc. We are a team in this journey and we hope you will find an outlet of love and support from so many others here locally.
We are here for you and we hope you will tune in as you never know how life changing it might be.
