These Fact Sheets were originally created for Brain Tumour Australia by Laraine Cross, Senior Oncology Social Worker, Calvary Mater, Newcastle, with assistance from the late Claire Vivien and Kaye Duffy. Funding was provided by a Canberra Family in memory of their son, Ben.
Brain Tumour Alliance Australia (BTAA) is the national brain tumour patient and carer support organisation in Australia. It was established in late 2008 by a group of brain tumour patients, and current and former carers. While welcoming the advice and input of specialists, BTAA seeks to represent the brain tumour community from the viewpoint of the patient, their carers, and their families.
