Review for Its Just Benign Inc, Edison, NJ, USA
When it comes to brain tumors, "benign" does not mean that it is not harmful. A benign brain tumor can be just as harmful and devastating as a malignant tumor, and the symptoms and side effects can alter a person's life forever. And despite popular belief, benign brain tumors can reoccur after removal and thus need to be monitored. One of the focuses of It's Just Benign is to educate the public about benign brain tumors and raise the collective conciousness. The support groups are excellent because they provide a means for those diagnosed with benign brain tumors to connect with other survivors to share resources and experiences. I am very glad that I discovered It's Just Benign because there seems to be no other support groups that are aimed specifically at survivors of benign brain tumors. As a BBT survivor myself, this organization is near and dear to my heart. While still relatively new, I can definitely see the impact that IJB has had on people's lives and perspectives, and I hope it will continue to grow larger and even stronger in the days to come.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
connecting with other benign brain tumor survivors, sharing resources and finally overcoming the feeling of isolation caused by my tumor. I have learned a lot, thanks to IJB!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I wish I were rich and had unlimited time and money to donate to this very worthy organization, but unfortunately I am not. If I could make a change, I would grant IJB the resources that it needs in order to flourish more.
