At the Cullather Center we strive to offer comfort and care for brain tumor patients and their families.
The Cullather Center is a non-profit, free-of-charge resource center with an emphasis on quality of life. Our nurse-run facility provides practical help for coping with this life-altering condition, filling in where traditional services lack.
In conjunction with the mission of Bon Secours to provide good help, the mission of the Cullather Brain Tumor Quality of Life Center is to help people live the new normal.
