Every patient and caregiver that contacts us is supported by a team of a neuro-oncology nurse navigator and an oncology social worker who remains by their side and guides them throughout their treatment path and survivorship. All of this is provided at no cost to the patient.

A signature service of BTN is help finding the right clinical trial for the patient based on their unique tumor pathology, genetic markers and living situation. BTN has developed a unique clinical trial matching system just for this purpose. Once the patient selects the right clinical trial for them, our navigators help with enrollment. Clinical trial selection and enrollment are essential because they improve patients' outcomes and help advance the science in creating better treatments for brain tumor patients.

Patients and their families may contact the Brain Tumor Network for help at Request a Consultation | Brain Tumor Network or by calling 844.286.6110.
