In 2006, my husband was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. They gave him three months to live. Within a month, my stepson was killed. Grieving deeply, I had to find a job while caring for my husband. I felt hopeless and was desperate to find a survivor of glioblastoma multiforme, but only found memorial sites, so I created my own site, compelled to give hope to others. Ted’s still going strong and inspires me every day. This is a site for hope. firstname.lastname@example.org

FDA Approves New Treatment for Reccuring GBMs
For many years, those of us living in brain cancer world have heard stories about a non-invasive treatment for glioblastomas that involve the use of electrical pulses that target brain tumors. It always sounded very much like science fiction. Patients place a cap on their head and electrical pulses are sent to the tumor site. No surgery or radiation involved. I was thrilled to see that it's not just science fiction anymore, and that there is yet another promising treatment for recurring brain tumors that can't be treated with surgery or radiation.
