MEETING AGENDA

MEET WITH OTHER CARETAKERS

Caretaking is hard work. Often the duties involved prevent us from fully being able to take care of ourselves in the process. Hear from others who completely understand you and share your story.

ASK QUESTIONS!

We will have a Social Worker at our event where you can ask whatever you want, without fear of the subject matter. Get the answers you've been looking for but were afraid to ask.

Through that year-long journey and following his death in 2010, she learned how to press on, determined to keep her family together and her faith intact. Marianne is "Mom" to 3 amazing, grown children and has one precious grandson. Since 2011, she formed the Bellingham Brain Tumor Support Group and continues to facilitate their monthly meetings.
