hi there 

my dad got diagnosed in 2009 and is still going strong. His on six monthly scans, he has one tomorrow. He has two different cancer cells and was told he would only survive five years. Has anyone from family or friends survived after the five years?? I would love to discuss any information. Thanks

I don't have the same cancer as your dad but was given 3 months to live and it has been 3 1/2 years.  Enjoy life, eat well, and live each day with laughter.  Prayers coming you and your dad's way.

My wife has a friend that was diagnosed with stage 3 GBM in 2000. We were able to get an appointment with the same surgeon that removed his, they also removed mine. He has been cancer free for 13 years. I am currently undergoing Temodar treatments once a month, all MRI scans have been clear so far.
