Partnership of Hope
A diagnosis of a brain tumor does not mean you give up hope.
What Is Hope?
Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope implies a certain amount of perseverance; ie, believing that a positive outcome is possible even when there is some evidence to the contrary.
A person who dreads 'what tomorrow may bring' loses the zeal of life itself. He cannot live in the present even for one day. I do not agree that 'any person can fight the battles of just one day.' There are many in the world who fight their battles life long, and still live with some hope.
It is nice to live for today and complete what is to be done today. But humans are distinguished from the rest of the living beings by hope. For other living beings, there may not be tomorrow. But hope is life for humans. Tomorrow may not come for a few. But the others are sure that there will be a day after the present one. And it is hoped by many to be a little better than today. What is not realized today may be within our reach tomorrow. It is hope that helps people live through all torments of life. The moment a person loses hope, the very zeal to live is lost. Hope means many things to different people, and here at ANS we strive to fulfill your definition of hope while treating your illness.

We held our third support meeting on June 28th and it again was a great success with over 50 attendees. Our special guests were a pet therapy specialist with her assistant “rosie” the dog. We also had a yoga instructor teach the group about balance, relaxation and inner peace.
Our wonderful attendees shared their stories. Once again, we came together with a common purpose to support one another, to keep a positive outlook and to remain strong.
Our group is growing each month and we look forward to some new faces at next months meeting. Thank you all and god bless. See you next month !!
