The BRAINTMR Mailing List
The Braintrust Healing Exchange runs a number of online support groups. For more information about our other mailing lists and online support groups, take a look at out Other Support Groups section.
The BRAINTMR list (BRAINTMR@mitvma.mit.edu) is a forum to discuss topics related to all types of brain tumors whether labeled "benign" or "malignant." Information and experience is shared among brain tumor patients, their families & supporters, all kinds of concerned medical and allied health professionals**, medical educators, and researchers who study brain tumor growth or treatment.
**(Interested health professionals include: neurosurgeons, nurses, social workers, primary care physicians, pathologists, oncologists, psychologists, rehabilitation therapists etc.)
BRAINTMR is open to all and is moderated, not edited. There is no charge for this service. If you are interested in joining the BRAINTMR mailing list, take a look at the mailing list quick commands list.
Here are just a few examples of how BRAINTMR is used:
BRAINTMR was initiated in October 1992 by Samantha J. Scolamiero, a brain tumor survivor. It came on-line May 15, 1993. There are about 1000 active subscriptions from six continents on the list. These include several redistribution lists and individual subscriptions for entire research organizations and brain tumor foundations. There are on average 50-100 messages per day. Many people generously offer their expertise and experiences to provide information and support. Anyone willing to talk about brain tumors is welcome to expand our discussions.
If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact a BRAINTMR Subscription Manager directly.
