The Healing Exchange Brain Trust is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing, promoting, and improving communication opportunities for individuals who are personally affected by, or who professionally treat or study, localized neurologic disorders (e.g., brain tumors) and subsequent or related healthcare concerns. In 1993, a brain tumor survivor founded the e-mail discussion list known as the BRAINTMR mailing list. The Healing Exchange Brain Trust was later established in 1997 to expand on the purpose and objectives of the BRAINTMR mailing list, utilize new technology, and address new topics. The trust is dedicated to creating, maintaining, offering, or endorsing communication vehicles to promote national and international networking among affected individuals, family members, friends, health professionals, and researchers. In addition, the trust is committed to conveying its knowledge, experiences, and resources to the broader healthcare community and the public to foster acceptance, understanding, and aid for individuals affected by neurologic conditions; to increase public awareness; and to further develop innovative resources. The Healing Exchange Brain Trust also seeks to emphasize ways in which affected individuals, family members, and healthcare professionals may work together to achieve healing and well-being.
