My name is David Lancaster, I have a Grade 3 Astrocytoma Brain Tumor. It started out as a Grade 2 Glioma tumor, which has over the years proven to be inoperable. I was a Boiler Maker at Nooter Corperation for 10 years until I had my first seizure in 1999. Since then I've been put on disability, and am unable to work. I am 47 years old and married to my bestfriend, Sherri, we have two daughters together, Lacey 23 and Codey 20 and one grand-daughter Grace Lee who is 18 months. All of this has taught me to look at life from a different view. I've been through Chemo (for a year and a half) and have had 45 radiation treatments which is the maximum I can have and two byopsys. I spend my time fishing, hunting, spending time with my family and friends, doing things around the house and Thanking God for everyday. If I'm not fishing during the day or playing with my grand-daughter while my wife is at work. I'm normally bored just sitting there watching t.v.. With that said, I had my youngest daughter get online and find me a support group/discussion board with other cancer survivors. I'm a very slow typer, so be patient with me, please. I look forward to having discussion with all of the other survivors on this network. May God Bless and Be with you!
