I had a Grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma and had it removed November 22,2005. I underwent 6 weeks of radiation and multiple chemotherapy treatments. Today, I continue to be cancer free. My strong faith, family, friends and my desire to fight this disease is why I believe I am a survivor. I did not want to know my prognosis at the time. At my 10 year follow up, I asked my Oncologist what was my prognosis at the time and he said "let's just say you shouldn't be here today." Never give up hope.
