    My heart goes out to you.  My husband also had to endure treatment for GBM.  So many cancers have had advances in effective treatments - brain cancer has not.  I wish you strength and hope.  Never give up on either.  It sucks!  I do know of someone who is alive and well after being diagnosed 9 yrs. ago.  She was able to have surgery after initially being told hers was inoperable.

      I so hope this is the key to eliminating a horrid cancer!  My husband (best friend and soulmate) recently passed after being diagnosed with an inoperable GBM.  Clinical studies, chemo and radiation couldn't help him.  If this vaccine can prevent others from death, it will be cause for a great celebration.

          July 29, 2010 was the last day of radiation/Temodar treatments for my husband's GBM. There were no major side effects at all during the treatments. The best advice we had was to stay at the Hope Lodge. We are so glad we did! Since the end of treatment he has been feeling great, has energy, and is working to put on weight and to regain lost muscle. He will go back on the clinical trial drug and Temodar on Aug. 26. While we know the odds are definitely not in our favor, we are enjoying every good day we can get. It means one less bad one.
