Well, this is a first for me. Getting to the point, my sister is just beginning the whole scary path. At this point she has not been officially diagnosed. She has her biopsy next Wednesday and gets the results a week from tomorrow. Right now, I am just looking for something possitive to hold on to. Everyone seems to have had surgery, she has been told surgery is impossible. Her tumor is so involved with the right hemisphere of her brain that if they try to take it out she could easily die, or be a quadropeligic and on a respirator. So chemo and radiation. This seems to me to be pretty bleak. I don't know if they are saying chemo and radiation as something to do, but they don't think it will help, or if it will possibly stop it from growing. Just feeling very heavy hearted, she is married, 29 and has four beautiful daughters, 1, 3, and twins that are 11. This breaks my heart and I would appreciate anyone with anything POSITIVE to say. I have enough negative going through my head right now. Thanks for reading.
