Brain Tumors

In 2010 BIAK expanded our outreach and support efforts to include persons who have a brain tumor when the Michael Quinlan Brain Tumor Foundation joined BIAK.

Michael Quinlan was a reporter for the Louisville Courier-Journal and an author who died with a glioblastoma in 2001. His wife, Kathy and sister, Eileen along with the rest of the family began the Michael Quinlan Brain Tumor Foundation in his memory. In 2010 they became a part of BIAK and his legacy continues in our efforts to reach out to and support persons affected by brain tumors.

The BIAK Brain Tumor Support groups meets on the fourth Wednesday from January to October, it meets on the third Wednesday of November and we have no meeting in December. Gilda’s Club, located at 633 East Baxter Avenue in Louisville is the site for all our meetings. They begin at 6:00 PM with a meal served by volunteers. There is no charge for the meal or to attend; however, RSVP’s are requested by Gilda’s Club. Contact Eddie Reynolds at eddie.reynolds@biak.us if you wish to get more information about the group and would like to receive notifications about each meeting.
