Acoustic Neuroma Association (ANA) is a non-profit organization established to provide information and support to patients who have been diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma, a rare, benign brain tumor that arises on the eighth cranial nerve impacting hearing and balance. The mission of Acoustic Neuroma Association (ANA) is to inform, educate and provide national and local support networks for those affected by acoustic neuromas, and to be an essential resource for health care professionals who treat acoustic neuroma patients.
ANA is a 501 (c)(3) organization and is patient founded. It is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of acoustic neuroma patients or family members. ANA, founded in 1981, now serves a membership of nearly 5,000.
To accomplish its mission, ANA has various programs including the Symposium to assist acoustic neuroma patients to become better educated on this rare disease. ANA also provides the ANA website (www.ANAUSA.org) available to interested parties throughout the world. The interactive ANA Discussion Forum can be accessed on the ANA website along with our Member Section. Access to a local support group is a benefit offered to ANA members. There are close to 50 local groups throughout the United States. For many the local group is the only place where they can make personal contact with other acoustic neuroma patients. Quarterly newsletters and patient information booklets are sent to members. Complimentary information packets are distributed to pre- and post-treatment patients, friends or family members and medical professionals. Patient surveys are conducted periodically to advance our understanding of acoustic neuromas, patient treatment and issues.
ANA is supported primarily through membership dues, contributions and grants and is headquartered in metropolitan Atlanta, GA.
