Here is my story. I was in an auto accident February 18, 2016. At the emergency department scans showed a brain tumor. I had surgery on February 22 to remove a "lime-sized" tumor from the left frontal area of my brain. This was not the entire tumor, but what the surgeon could remove safely. The tumor is Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV (GBM-IV). Unfortunately GBM-IV is a serious progressive tumor for which there is no known cure. After recovering from surgery I began a 6-week treatment regime of radiation 5 days per week, and chemotherapy every day. The last day of this treatment will be May 3. In early June I'll have an MRI to assess my brain and the tumor, and start a chemotherapy treatment program.
