Good news: My mother was diagnosed in 2008 and is now a 10 year survivor of Stage III CRC
Bad News: She was very recently diagnosed with glioblastoma, had surgery to remove the primary tumor, will again do chemoradiation, and given only about 12-14 months to live.
Is there a forum like this for brain cancer?
