One patient with glioblastoma still alive nine years later

My husband and I took others advice and last week went to see Dr. Tannir at MD Anderson in the hunt for some hope. Prevously he was diagnosed with Medullary but with him not having the sickle cell trait it has been determined he has uncatorgorized renal cell. The plus of the visit was to hear that there are some treatment options. The downsize is the lack of hope for remission. We are thankful for our visit to MD Anderson and would recommend others when hope seems hard to find to make the voyage. We are now home to work with my husband's local oncologist who will consult with Dr. Tannir on treatment. We are now getting close to our daughters 1st birthday (June 2) which last sept. was told would be "un probable". Continuing to fight but also seeing the old symptoms return and are very scared. Looking for ways to talk to my husband about his wishes, and gifts of letters I would like for him to do for our two little ones without showing him I'm giving up. Any suggestions?
