Anaplastic Pxa

My 17 yr old daughter was diagnosed with anaplastic pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma(PXA) tumor in April 2006. Most of tumor surgically removed, concurrent radiation and temodar completed to be followed up with 5 days on, 23 days off cycles of temodar. I'm told this tumor is fairly rare and I'd like to hear from others who have or had this type of tumor. Thank you.

23 year old son, first diagnosed with IV GBM; 2nd opinion weighed in on anaplastic pxa; waiting for 3rd opinion.  Starting temodar & radiotherapy next week--same treatment as for GBM.  Told it's so rare that there's no real statistical data on how to treat this.  Does anyone know anything more?

I was diagnosed with this tumour in October 2006. It was situated in the right temporal lobe. I had a surgery and it was completely removed. Now I'm 21 years old and I'm fine.

My daughter also was diagnosed with this,we are hitting brick walls with treatment due to this being so rare they are not sure what to do. What did they do for your son? I refuse to just accept there is nothing they can do.
