As a person with a Oliodendroglioma we are the silent majority of people with a brain tumor. We have a good survival percentage but with current technology a zero percent "cure" rate. I will have it the rest of my life. My goal is to die of old age. Plus basically no research fir treatments is used for our brain tumor type yet more of us are alive than people with a GBM. Our LTD time is to long to develop a good medicine data wise. heck one that was tried on a GBM may be successful on Oilios but they never tried.

My husband Thomas died of GMB 12 months after diagnosis and every chemo/radiation they had to throw at it, nothing stopped it and when it grew back it did it in double time. All we kept getting told is "i'm sorry we don't know what causes it and we don't know how to kill it" FIND A WAY AND THE ONLY WAY TO DO THAT IS WITH RESEARCH! Vertually NO research goes into Brain Cancer!

I carry a special place in my heart for your Tom and I will never forget the month I spent with you, him and Brian just a few months before he passed. You taught me so much about life and love and what it means to be unconditionally in love and survival... what a trooper you all were!!!

I AM A MENINGIOMA SURVIVOR AND A "LUCKY LADY"! IN 2006 I HAD A LEFT, FRONTAL CRANIOTOMY, HAD THE TUMOR SUCCESSFULLY REMOVED, HAVE NO DEFICITS AND AM FULLY RECOVERED. HOWEVER, MANY SURVIVORS ARE NOT THIS FORTUNATE. MANY LIVE WITH HORRIFIC DISABILITIES AND EVENTUALLY DIE. THESE TUMORS ARE CLASSIFIED BENIGH BECAUSE THEY DON'T SPREAD FROM ORGAN TO ORGAN BUT IN SOME CASES THEY MULTIPLY! BECAUSE OF THIS CLASSIFICATION, THERE IS VERY LITTLE FUNDING FOR RESEARCH TO FIND A CURE FOR THESE DESTRUCTIVE...
