    Hello everyone, I'm a daughter of a GBM4 patient (48 years old). In October 2017, my mom was diagnosed with GBM4, the tumor dimension was 56mm x 59mm in her left frontal lobe. She underwent a surgery which reduced the tumor's size to 41x49mm, immediately followed by radiation theraphy - 30 treatments and TMZ (5 days/ cycle).  This January, in her post-radiation and several TMZ cycles scan, the tumor size did s...

      Hi Dave, Thank you very much for your message. That's indeed really great mentality. I hope things are going well for you in terms of treatments and everything else.  My mom is a very strong and independent woman, she's home at the moment after 3 months in the hospital. She recovers quite well from the surgery and radiotherapy, still does the cooking and grocery shopping by herself, eats moderately, takes TMZ ...

        Hi BGreene, Sadly this is what our family doesn't know, the hospital also did not mention this. I hope everything go well with the treatment of your husband. Please keep us update.

          Hi Ashley, Yes I have, however, i'm not confident that I would be knowledgeable enough to know the dosage as well as the chemical reactions well so I did not add it to the cocktail. Maybe you want to consult it with the oncologist? I did not ask my oncologist about these but I did consider the option of combining TMZ and Tamoxifen but he did not support it so we did not combine it.

            Hi Ashley, Have you read "Treament options for Glioblastoma and other Gliomas" by Ben William? It's a really healpful source that summarizes many kinds of treaments as well as supplements, it's available on VirtualTrial. If you haven't, I highly recommend it and also his book "Surviving Terminal Cancer". It's like a good starting point.   My mom had just finished 30 radiation treatments together with oral...

              Hi everyone,  I'm a 20-year old daughter of GBM4-diagnosed mom from Vietnam.  - Pre-GBM4 diagnosis: Last October my mom told me through the phone that she started to develop Aphasia, I was very worried so i told her to have a check-up at the hospital but she didn't (I'm currently studying abroad, in Europe so I couldn't be there to force her to go to the hospital). Few weeks later, I heard from my family ...
