    Thank You Heather for you sincere and compassionate response. I am a LTS and am currently doing well (although not a believer). Just felt the need to respond to this silly comment "Almost all of the cancer survivors I have found have such a large faith in God and Jesus” She says these types of things a lot on this forum. Probably should have ignored it. Thanks again you seem like a lovely and...

        Percentage of people do survive and even thrive. Although there are things like age, tumor location and extent of resection   that do tip the scales a bit (one way or the other) by in large it’s more or less the luck of the draw as to who becomes a long term survivor. That means that any given individual more or less has the same chance as any other to be a long term survivor. Hux......

          I know Cedars was doing something about a year or two ago. It is called ICT-107  and ICT-121 (for recurrent). I think the inital reports were not wonderful but it helped some people. Not the DC Vax but may hold some promise.   Hux....

              I had a surgeon who also resected the extra margins. It’s been 4 years since my last surgery. I can’t say for sure if this made a difference but based on everything I have heard and been told the more they remove the better. You can also ask them if they are going to take sample biopsies around  the margin as well. They did this for me and it gave them an idea if the tumor had infiltrate...

                The best way to help is to respect her needs, keep here happy and positive and get her the best medical advice possible. Try to accompany here on all Docter visits and keep notes. Secondary and tertiary opinions are super important . Probably most importantly keep telling her you love her. Huxley.....

                  I think the most important thing to do is to keep happy. As diet has not been proven to help in any appreciable manner  the last thing you want to do is force a  eating regiment on someone who is already in the midis of a terrifying disease. If this regiment provides them hope and makes them happy then it’s the right thing to do. It’s really about the patient. I think the primary job of the c...

                    You have a much better chance of being killed in a car crash or falling down and breaking your neck.  Wouldn’t worry about Brain tumors there are many more likely ways that person can succumb. Hope I don’t sound insensitive but that’sthereality.   Hux...

                      Think it depends on the situation. If you are capable of having a near total resection I would think twice about avastin? If there is significant swelling and a substantial tumor present Avastin at a minimum should help reduce the swelling and provide a better quality of life. I think the jury is still out as to whether avastin can prevent brain tumors but think there is a lot of documented proof that avastin ca...
