            Christinia: Please keep us posted on your husband, we all care!  Try to stay positive and remember that just because Doctors tell you a time-frame doesn't mean it's so!  Always bring a note pad and write things down, ask questions.  It's always a good idea to get affairs in order just saying. Every person is different stay strong and do all you can to beat the odds! Diane

We also did Radiation and...

                  Dear Elliehop: I'm so sorry to hear about your son who is only 17!  My husband is 74 with this GBM Stage IV...But I'm all about second opinions and we lived in PA before settling in Fla.  I looked at all options and decided to go to Duke Brain Center in NC.  It is worth having a second opinion to look at all options especially a hospital that all they focus on is Brain Tumors.  The best of luck d...
