This is what our Waterloo-Kitchener Chapter Leaders/Organizers have to say:
“I have been a member of ANAC since 2000, not because I experienced an AN journey personally but because I walked alongside my mother during hers. I do feel that I experienced first-hand the frustration at lack of resources and information, the feeling of being alone to figure out this process...and what can be done to help those newly diagnosed and facing their own journey. I served on the board of directors during a time of much change in ANAC. I also belong to a tight knit group of K-W chapter members who definitely share a warmth and common openness.
I am pleased to be a small part of this year’s AGM planning in the beautiful quaint town of St. Jacobs. With a theme of "aftercare" there should be something for everyone along with ample time for questioning of our resources and guidance for newly diagnosed members. It is important that spouses and partners or just friends also attend so they can support fully.
Acoustic neuromas are gaining much attention with better diagnostics and treatment options. Help us keep up the good work of the ANAC association by attending our AGM and also celebrating 30 years of partnership.”
“I had my AN surgery in 2000. We were living in Illinois then and I was involved with the ANA there. I have been involved with ANAC and the Kitchener Waterloo Chapter since we moved back to Ontario in 2004. I have attended most of the AGM's in Canada and have enjoyed meeting fellow patients across the country and visiting new cities.
I am excited that the AGM this year will be held in Waterloo. The venue is right on the edge of the Village of St. Jacob's, Our chapter is involved with the planning for the speakers and the Meet and Greet on Friday Night. The focus this year is on post-op care, addressing issues such as eye care, hearing loss and facial therapy. I know some of the speakers personally and am looking forward to having them share some of their expertise with us.
We would like to organize a tour on Sunday to visit the Village and enjoy a meal at The Stone Crock, a local Mennonite restaurant, and shopping in the unique shops.
We look forward to meeting you in September!”
