I am from the Colon Cancer discussion board, but need help from you guys. I have a very good friend that was told her mother has a "primary" brain tumor that has filtered through the brain. Years ago she was Dx with Stage 1 colon cancer and their Onc Doc stated that the brain tumor was NOT associated with the colon cancer.
She lost her father to melonomia (skin cancer) a few years ago and now she is really afraid of losing her mother. She is 72 years old and WANTS to fight this beast and win. I am "assuming" that the tumor is considered Stage IV due to the filters it has throughout the brain. Good news is that she is scheduled for brain surgery on Thursday, 14 December and the doctor has stated it will help and could prolong her life. She will also do radiation after surgery.
Right now my friend could use ALL the good and positive stories out there.
THANKS FOR READING AND RESPONDING.
