Support | ANS Center NJ
  • The ANS Center for Hope Foundation was created in 2012 when ANS was approached by a patient’s wife, who described her journey through the process of her husband’s battle with a brain tumor. Here at ANS we have always had the belief that hope is the most important trait to keep when facing struggles with health problems. With hope, along with the best medical care team, miracles of healing can occur. When we discussed this belief, we decided to create a “partnership of hope” that aligns the patient and the doctor with one common goal, which is a cure — and if a cure is not possible, the hope to face the illness with strength, dignity, and peace. The ANS Center for Hope Foundation group gets together each month to exchange personal stories about individual journeys through their illness. The group is truly a support group and when we get together we talk, cry, eat, but mostly we laugh and enjoy each other as people, not an illness. We celebrate each life, not each disease. Each month we have a guest speaker who brings the group a fun way to face the struggles of fighting an illness.

    Partnership of Hope - Brain Tumor Support GroupThis group normally meets monthly on the fourth Thursday each month.

    We welcome you to our support family and invite you each month to share with us all your life, struggles, and belief in hope… Please call our dedicated brain tumor support hotline at 855-267-2667 or email us at centerforhope@ansdocs.com to answer any questions about the group or to attend the next monthly gathering.
