Dear BTSS Family,
Knowledge is power, but sifting through all the information available online and around us can sometimes seem like an impossible challenge. One website may recommend a certain approach, but we may receive different advice from our friends, and a third source may yet provide an altogether different perspective. How does one make sense of all this?
To help increase clarity amidst the confusion, BTSS has started an initiative to compile a list of resources that may be helpful to all beneficiaries, patients and caregivers. There are many online webpages which provide accurate and relevant information, a list of which is available at http://braintumoursociety.org.sg/info/useful-links/.
In addition to these resources, BTSS has also purchased hardcopy books about Brain Tumours and related topics. These books will be kept at the BTSS Office. Interested members may contact Eve to request to borrow the books, at no charge. We only ask that you take care of these resources and return them on time as they are meant to be of use to every member in BTSS.
A list of the books available are as follows:
The Brain’s Way of Healing: Stories of Remarkable Recoveries and Discoveries
