This month markes my sister's two year anniversary for having being diagnosed with an anaplastic astrocytoma. A diagnosis that I will never accept as something that a good person should have to endure if this world makes any sense.
In some respect I am relieved that she does not have any long term deficit that she was able to graduate and is very successful professionally. A local TV station wanted to do a segment on her but she declined for now. She is looking forward, not back.
Foe anyone out there who just has been diagnosed, it is possible to survive. You need top notch medical help, a will of iron (my sister works out every day, will live every moment to the fullest) and just plain... luck.
I use to come on this website a lot, but lately I have been taking a break. I keep coming back because I am still hurt by everything that has happen to our family.
