I am 37 year old and on May 27th, 2016, I was diagnosed with a Brain Stem Glioma C71.9 .Since this is a very rare tumor to find in adults, I decided it'd be a good idea to share my story and experiences.
The first session is an audio introduction, but the other sections are informative and entertaining presentations by the researchers and faculty. The presentations cover everything from the formation of cancer cells to clinical trials.

We provide handmade custom prosthetic breastforms that are knitted and/or crocheted. Our breast forms are made by volunteers and are provided at no cost to anyone who has had a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Our generous volunteers buy the yarn, lovingly donate their time to produce beautiful custom forms, and pay the shipping costs. We do not accept monetary donations. All we ask is that recipients share our website information with others who may need our beautiful and truly awesome breastforms.
Only the highest quality 100% cotton fiber yarn is used, which is cooler, lighter and much more comfortable than traditional silicone prosthetics. There are color options available and recipients may choose a breastform with or without nipples.
