    There's got to be Nam Vets here with GBM-4. I've been finding them every where in numerous groups. Please respond.

        Sorry to hear you are now on the GBM-4 journey. We were on our's for 21 months. Needless to say many changes occur. Stay strong and get as much info that you can.  We had to deal with his PTSD from Nam worsening as the journey went on. It was 2 years in Dec. since our journey ended.

          My late husband was a Tanker in Viet Nam 70/71, he fought GBM-4 for 21 months. His claim was denied and I promised I would continue his fight. I've been compiling a list of Nam Vets that have GBM-4 Brain Cancer. The list continues to grow. How can so many Nam Vets die of GBM-4 and it not be connected to Viet Nam?

              Totally agree, maybe some day we will get it out there for people to know about Brain Cancer. Got to find a way!

                  I don't understand why ther's nothing out there about Brain Cancer Awareness either! Seems like every month Breast Cancer is holding another event. I told them they need to keep their events during their month! :) Missing my husband and hoping to hold annual golf tournament in his name, don't think it will happen this year. Margee'
