Welcome to the Epidermoid Brain Tumor Society
The mission of Epidermoid Brain Tumor Society (EBTS) is to inform, educate, and to provide a support and research organization for those affected by the epidermoid brain tumor. When a patient is faced with surgery for the epidermoid brain tumor, the decision that one makes of finding a medical professional with extensive experience is critical for a successful outcome. With surgery, there is assault on cranial nerves in the skull base leaving possible deficits. The surgery can be life altering with deficits and many months/years of recuperation. EBTS educates and supports the patient and family on their journey regarding the symptoms, the diagnosis, and treatments by their doctors.
EBTS promotes awareness and advocates for research for the epidermoid brain tumor. The epidermoid brain tumor can reoccur for many patients and there is a limit to how many tumors and surgeries epidermoid patients can have before quality of life is threatened. Only with research can these brain tumors be eradicated.
Patient founded, EBTS is an incorporated, non-profit organization, recognized as such by the IRS, and is supported by contributions from its members, friends, along with corporate grants.
