The Acoustic Neuroma Association of Canada (ANAC) is a non-profit, self-help organization dedicated to providing a comfortable environment for people who have or are facing the removal of acoustic neuromas and other tumors involving the cranial nerves. Acoustic neuromas are benign (noncancerous) tumors affecting the eighth cranial nerve, which is located in the auditory canal of the ear. Established in 1984, ANAC provides support; furnishes information on patient rehabilitation to physicians and healthcare personnel interested in the treatment of benign tumors and the alleviation of post-surgical problems; and promotes and supports research on the cause, development, and treatment of acoustic neuromas. ANAC consists of 500 members and produces educational materials including a quarterly newsletter titled, "The Connection," a pamphlet on acoustic neuroma, and a brochure titled, "The Hope is Recognition and Treatment." Program activities include regular support group meetings, patient advocacy, patient networking and patient education.
