    Brian, My 58 yo mother was dx with GBM IV 1/13. 95%+ resection of tumor in right parietal.

        This is my first post on CancerCompass, but I have been following you all since my mom's dx on 1/9/13. What an incredible forum, for an amazing group of individuals who have been affected a such a terrible type of aggresive cancer... too bad we all have to be here under such unfortunate circumstances whether you are a patient, or a caregiver to a loved one. I find comfort in knowing that I am not alone in this fight....
