Brother with GBM

by Suz724 - March 15 at 8:52 PM

Hi, I can’t believe I’m writing this now but 6 years ago in Feb 2013 my brother then 46 was diagnosed with stage IV GBM and given 6 months to live. It’s amazing he’s had 5 1/2 years fully functioning and was considered in remission until a recurrence that is inoperable 8 months ago. He underwent radiation in December and his first MRI showed stable. His second shows slight progression. He is on avastin monthly. He’s gone through every treatment available and they are saying there is nothing left for them to try. Over the past month he’s lost use of the left side of his body but mentally he is ALL there. We thought it was from coming off steroids but NO (at UCSF) feels it’s from the tumor. What would we see from this point going forward if it keeps progressing? We are so grateful we’ve had all this time with him but want more. Not ready to lose him. I think I know the outcome but you never know....he’s beat the odds before.
