Hey there fellow brain cancer survivors...

I was diagnosed with a grade 2 Astrocytoma in the fall of 2008. I had a craniotomy in September 2008, and another one in February of this year (2009). I have been on Temodar for three months and just found out that my brain is responding well to chemotherapy. Yeah!

I've been keeping a blog and documenting most of my journey. At first I was hesitant to share my journal with people I don't know, but I read a lot of posts written by recently diagnosed people who are scared about treatment and surgery and I hope that by sharing my journal it might help ease the fear.

Check out http://thelizarmy.blogspot.com/2009/03/48-hours.html to see video footage of me 48-hours after my second craniotomy.

Keep up your positive attitudes--it's the best medicine for our brain, and it's free.

I'm so glad to hear that you're responding well to the meds!
I'm also glad you've let us in on your journal which has kept me immersed for quite a while - you have a new follower (orange kitty with a rose in her teeth) now :)
