ANAC Board 2017

President's Message

Judy Haust

Hello, and welcome! The Acoustic Neuroma Association of Canada (ANAC) is the only organisation in Canada serving the needs of individuals with an acoustic neuroma.

ANAC is a peer-led organisation formed to provide support to people with acoustic neuromas. The organisation was founded in 1983 when Virginia Garossino, Linda Gray, and Velma Campbell met for the first time.

Many individuals who face and undergo removal of acoustic neuromas have questions, concerns, and physical and emotional adjustments. As an incorporated, registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency, we are operationally sustained by your generous donations and committed to responding to your questions.

ANAC continues to move forward; our purpose is as relevant today as it was in 1983. The association’s greatest success is the continuing belief of our dedicated membership that the need for ANAC is still relevant, and that the volunteered time, information and support gives hope, education, and friendship to others searching for it. This open, supportive style of sharing, giving, and receiving has developed a fantastic network of members, medical professionals, and other connections.

If you are not yet a member, I would encourage you to join us! New members and stakeholders are warmly welcomed.

Should you have any questions or would like further information on becoming a member, please contact the National Office at 1-800-561-2622 or send us an email.
