The Och Spine Hospital at the Neurological Institute of New York
This hospital is famous around the world as a leader in the treatment of spinal conditions, including spinal cord tumours.  Its website includes a very helpful and interesting article about these tumours and I would like to thank the hospital for giving us permission to reprint the article.  If you would like to read it you can find it by clicking on the link on our Links Page.

Christine's Story

Our thanks to Christine who has written her story for us.  You can now read it on the Your Stories page.  She was told she had a tumour in 2013 but she has opted so far not to have surgery to remove it.  In her story she explains her reasons for this and what has happened during the years since her diagnosis.

CERN Foundation Guide to Ependymomas

The CERN Foundation in the US has published the second edition of its guide to ependymomas.

It provides basic facts surrounding ependymomas, its diagnosis and treatment.

You can download the Ependymomas Guide here

It is also possible to ask the Cern Foundation for a free copy of the guide to be posted to you.

Please help us to raise awareness of the SCT Forum

Many people have never heard of spinal cord tumours, and many who are affected have little access to information or support. By increasing awareness of the Spinal Cord Tumour Forum, we can increase general awareness of this condition, and reach as many people as possible across the country who are affected and would benefit from the website.

Please consider helping us by taking the SCTF poster to your hospital or doctors surgery to ask them to put it up on the notice board for patients.

You can download and print out the SCTF poster here

If you have any issues downloading the poster, just send us an email and we can send it to you directly. 

If you do take the poster to your hospital or local surgery, please drop us a line to let us know, so we can keep track of where the forum is being publicised.

Thank you!
