My sister was diagnosed in June of 1996 with a glioblastoma tumor and was given 9 months to live and it is now 2013 and   she has been given now 6 months to live. Her life has not been easy, but she has survived with no signs of another tumor until recently. Radiation has come back to haunt her. I think she might be one of the longest living survivor from this type of tumor.

back in the beginning she has surgery to remove it and then again to put the radiation seeds in her skull, no other surgeries. she lived as comfortably as possible. she could walk, but was always cold. she eventually had to start wearing diapers back in 2004 then came a walker. seizures have now picked up, she can no longer walk. is now being moved to a hospice house.
