I am ashley I am 18 and currently have brain cancer. After surviving many agressive treatments to get rid of leukemia and later ovarian cancer I was given a brain cancer diagnosis. I must say I am afraid to lose this battle but I will keep fighting for as long as i can. Everything happens for a reason and God gives everyone a time of their own I just can't help but wonder is this time my time. In order to treat the brain cancer I have undergone 2 surgeries and 12 rounds with chemo. I am afraid and wonder is there anyone around my age who was able to win against their cancer no matter what doctors have told them?

Ashley, I'm not your age, but I don't want you to feel that you are alone here. You have been through a lot in your young life. Of course, you're scared. All I can say is that you seem to have a good outlook. Since you mentioned God, I will offer my prayers. Have you tried the thread for young people? If not, check it out. Blessings, Fay
