WalkTalkConnect is non-profit 501 (C) (3) dedicated to building a “peer-to-peer” mentoring community that connects patients and caregivers facing the unique challenges rare brain & spinal cord tumors present.  

Last year, we asked you for dollars to help with publishing "ReConnected: Stories from Spinal Cord Tumor Survivors" by Dawn Standera and you came through with $2900!! On September 15th, we held our official launch party to celebrate Dawn's hard work, as well as all the survivors who contributed their stories.  Scroll down to read patient quotes from "ReConnected".

Why is this book so important?

Because it will aid in our mission to build “peer-to-peer” mentoring communities with patients and their families so they can openly share personal experiences, stories, advice and support online and face-to-face meet-ups.  These interactions are vital to the physical, mental and emotional recovery process these families face.  With each connection made, families feel less alone.  

What Your Dollars Support.

Your dollars support programs, meet-up events and informational books like "Reconnected" that all help patients, caregivers and the medical community to connect, share and learn from one another to further the healing process after diagnosis, surgery and treatment.  

Our close relationship with The Givens Brain Tumor Center and Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute allows us to connect with these patients and families and provide supplemental support alongside their continued medical advancement.  

With your donation, we can provide the necessary support and resources in 2023 for patients and caregivers facing a "new normal” life.

With your help, these families can find peace of mind – together.

It's all about the Power of Connection.
