I was diagnosed with 2 germinoma brain tumors at the age of 31. After having a shunt installed and a craniotomy to remove the tumor on my pineal gland, I went through 28 rounds of radiation to remove the pituitary tumor. I completed treatment on August 19, 2011 and have been cancer free since. I am still in the window for recurrence. But, doctors are very hopeful for continued full remission.
