My mother-in-law has just been diagnosed with GBM grade 4. They say she has a butterfly glioma and that it is inoperable. They have given her 4 months to a year. She is 59 y/o.I hate timelines and we are not giving up HOPE! I would love to hear what treaments have worked for others with this diagnosis. We are also interested in hearing about any alternative therapy that has worked for others as well. I just want to know what to expect so I can be on top of everything for her. We would like to get a second opinion also. Does anyone know of great Physicians in the Chicagoland area that specialize in brain ca? Or even MD's that we could send her scans to? We are willing to travel if need be. She is a fighter and We do beleive that Miracles happen every day! All your comments are greatly appreciated!
