I am sorry to read your latest turn of events. Yes check out possible trials. I've been waiting for the other shoes to drop in my body. I am very much aware, with all they threw at me, I will most likely be looking at a 2nd cancer in the not to distant future.
Take care of yourself,

Lee don't think like that. no you will not get another cancer in your lifetime. You have beating it.
Cancer sucks no matter what and 52 such a young age still. Any holistic approaches? just wondering if chemo and radiation is worth it at this point and maybe trying alternative treatments?
May god heal you!!

Reading about your brain tumor diagnosis figuratively hit me directly in the gut.
My brother had a similar diagnosis of a Grade1V Glioblastoma multiforma when he was 16 years of age. The tumor was an infiltrating spider web involving his right temporal-partial lobe (and motor cortex and speech center). This was in 1984. He underwent surgery with a partial resection of the tumor mass and was given 6 months to live. Neither chemotherapy nor radiation was available, as the science had not yet found way for agents to cross the blood brain barrier.
My brother is alive today, a miracle in his own right. He is now 61 years of age and, while showing some neurological compromise, is doing well and living independently. His amazing survival is due to the intrinsic ability of his own immune system that was able to identify the surface proteins of his cancer and amount a successful attack. My brother’s immune system intuitively knew what science researchers are now just beginning to understand of the immune system and it’s role in challenging cancers. I share this as a ray of hope. Miracles do happen.
You have my most sincere of prayer for your well-being,
