On June 1, 2016, Dean went to stony brook emergency room for speech problems and drooling. We were told he had a mass on his brain (most likely glioblastoma -GBM.)
On June 3 we moved Dean to NYU and he was diagnosed with 2 tumors on his brain. A larger, primary tumor (near the language area) and a smaller, secondary one (near the memory area.)
Dean had surgery on Friday, June 10 at NYU, performed by Dr. Pacione and Dr. Golfinos. Dr Pacione has confirmed that Dean does in fact, have Glioblastoma (GBM)
They got 85-90% of the larger tumor. Going any further would have been a great risk to Dean's speech.
I will post updates weekly to keep everyone abreast of Dean's health.
Please keep Dean in your prayers. http://haveahearthamptons.org/dean-pace-donation
