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.
Thank you for your signature, and helping raise our voice for awareness.
I have an Oligodrenglomia gr.2 also, you're right about our tumor type :-( that's why I started this. Hopefully it will make a difference for others :-) God Bless
your on virtualtrials.com also correct? Al Musella is the best supporter of brain tumor research anywhere.
No, but I will be...LOL..thanks!
me too I survived the same thing 2 surgeries 30 radiation treatments & 1 year Procarbazine PCV
2 1/2 Years Speech therapy.
People are slow with progress...slow with medical advancements. Slow with everything. Slow to comprehend there are excellent treatments out there in our world and even CURES for many illnesses we have, including mental illness, most cancers, diabetes, etc. I have been coming across info about a natural plant found in tropical regions that can kill cancer cells w/o the harmful effects chemo has. SOURSOP. Is this a hoax? I think not. I know of some very educated and professional doctors and...

SOURSOP. Is this a hoax? I think not. I know of some very educated and professional doctors and nurses who have communicated to me we will be getting these better treatments and cures soon, under the new bill. Still hard for many to believe, including myself. But I am seeing the progession taking place slowly. DO NOT LOSE HOPE!
we will NOT allow for greed to keep getting in our way. No...No way

My husband died 3 weeks ago from glioblastoma brain cancer at the age of 56. He died 2 years after diagnosis. All Brain Cancers do not have the awareness they need. Please sign the petition to find a cure. Thank you ~.
Lori, I am SO SORRY to hear about your loss. Thank you for taking time to sign this, I am taking this to congress myself!! I want to help all of us, we are all warriors, who fight and fight hard. God Bless !!!! You will be in my prayers <3
Lost my mom to cancer in september.My prayers are with you when u take this to congress.God bless you.Thanks for being our voice........
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!
Peggy, I'm so very sorry for the loss of your husband. This disease is horrible, and your right we don't get the funding we need. Thank you for signing, keep sending the link. Thank you again. God Bless
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!!!
Just trying to bring awareness so more research can be funded for brain tumors.
Bring Awareness to this Highly Successful Cancer treatment, No Radiation/Chemo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARp_JlXqDsU and look on Left/Right sides for Survivors and info here http://burzynskipatientgroup.org
I lost both of my parent's to Glioblastoma..All within a 4 year span..Something has got to be done to make research a higher priority..
I'm living with 3 BT's the one they are watching most is the one on the brain stem, at present they have all started growing again, I was told 3 years ago that the brainstem one is inoperable, and due to the NF1 that is causing it radiation would cause them to grow aggressively instead of shrinking them, now thye have changed everything, and I want a 2nd opinion. and am getting sarcasim from my Dr about it. I am at my wits end. Please, please due more research on brain tumor/cancer.
We need to help eliminate this disease not keep it going and changing because it employs people...
I lost my father to a brain tumor....no one should have to die in this manner.
Any typeof cancer is a serious issue. I am a survivor of stomach cancer in which I was told I would not make it through. My mom remained by my side the entire time. Without her love and support, I really don't think I could have made it through even the worst times. Thank you mom! Please let there be a cure for all cancer someday. Cancer is extremely and indescribably painful! We have great technology out there in medications, equipment and trial studies.
