This month’s #btsm (brain tumor social media) chat theme focused on brain tumor disclosure. Below are the topics we discussed.
- T1: How have you disclosed your or another’s experience with a brain tumor to friends, extended/new family, in the workplace etc.?
- T2: How has your disclosure method and comfort level in sharing information changed over time?
- T3: How do you feel after disclosing information? What makes you feel more or less empowered?
Patients, survivors, caregivers, physicians, family, and friends all weighed in and expressed a common consensus that disclosure overall really depends on the situation and setting.
Once again, participants expressed their appreciation for #btsm chats and the presence of the brain tumor social media community at large – I love knowing that #btsm chats make a difference.
