Corpus Callosum Tumor

Last week my 30 year-old sister and mother of a young son was diagnosed with a recurring tumor in the corpus callosum. Her first tumor, a grade III astrocytoma, was removed in February 2005. She underwent follow-up radiation therapy for six weeks and has been on chemotherapy ever since. Until about a month ago she was living a normal healthy life. According to her doctors, the new tumor is inoperable but can be treated. I am working non-stop to find the best treatment options available. Her current neurosurgeon contacted Dr. Friedman's office at Duke last week. Does anyone have advice on best treatment options for this type of tumor? I am looking to connect with someone who has had treatment for a tumor in this area of the brain.

My husband was diagnosed with a recurring tumor in the corpus callosum just last week (anterior, medial right frontal lobe). He had a grade III astrocytoma removed in January of this year (located in his third ventrical), recieved 30 IMRT(radiation) treatments with conjunctive chemo(Temodar) and had 5 more months of the oral chemo.  We are waiting for a consultation with a neurosurgeon. His Medical Oncologist stated that this tumor was probably inoperable and that "cyberknife" may be our next option, along with new drug therapy. Avastin has recently been approved by the FDA. He was taking Temodar, but has quit the drug as it has stopped working against his brain cancer. I, too am looking for answers??????
