On July 30 my 34 year old mother was diagnosed with GBM IV. She underwent emergency surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Last week we were informed that not only has her cancer come back, but it is larger and intangled within the brainstem leaving us with very little options. I guess I decided to come on today to salvage any hope because we are desperate at this point.
I am nearly 20 and never thought that something like this could happen to me. Life has changed dramatically since the summer. I transfered to a school closer to home so I can live with her and my older sister deffered a year from NYU Dental so we could be home with my mother and help take care of our younger brother since my dad has to go to work. If anyone needs to talk, I am always willing to listen. I understand how no one can relate to you and sometimes just talking does help. Please don't hesitate to reply.
