    Brain Cancer

    My husband was diagnosed with GBM on 10/27/09, biopsy on 10/30 and tumor removal on 11/11. Completed radiation treatments and was on Temodar 5/23 and Avastin every 2 weeks. Tumor returned 6/10, changed chemo treatments, Voronistat, tumor continued to grow; Tarceva, tumor continued to grow. November 2010 - treatments have been stoppped for now - waiting to heal from fissure. Bill lost his battle with this horrible disease on 1/10/11. I still cannot believe that he is gone. I used this site to help me get answers to questions while working through his treatments and found many friends who understood exactly what we were going through. My husband was the best man in the whole world and I was lucky to have him in my life for 23 years. I do not know how I will move forward without him and I just pray every day that we find a cure so that no one else will have to go through this nightmare.
