I am the caregiver for Ed, we have been married for 38 yrs. Ed was diagnosed with anaplastic mixed cell glioma in July, 2008, has had surgery, radiation, and treated with Temador for 7 mos. when more cancer growth showed up, soo he began Avastin and Irinotecan in April, 2009-9/09. MRI in NOv. shows further growth, so has started back on Avastin only. It's a journey!! I am an elementary teacher and retired in May, 2009. ED is a civil engineer and retired in 2006, but was working part time until time of surgery. We look forward to more time together!!
March, 2010, it was decided to no longer be on chemo and to go on hospice. Did well until May 16, when 2 gran mal seizures put him in the hospital and then the nursing home. He lost the battle on Aug. 13, 2010 and I miss him more than I could have ever known!!!!
