My father was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme and underwent surgery 4 weeks after I joined his business. I am suddenly responsible for 3 different locations and apparently have a HUGE mess to clean up. I had noticed that he walked funny, slurred his speech and had temper outbursts months prior to his diagnosis, and was aware of his forgetfulness. I am now discovering that there are a multitude of delinquent accounts, some that could include potential lawsuits. I need to find evidence of similar experiences with the brain tumor. If you have any stories of uncharacteristic or bizarre behaviors, particularly regarding money management, this could help in my discussions with lawyers. I have repeatedly read how the tumor can effect the personality, but this is an extremely vague statement, and I could use some examples. It is apparently not enough to watch a seemingly healthy and active 65 year old man left completely immobile virtually overnight, but I have had my financial advisor taken from me as well.
