Long Term Survivor


I was 29 when I learned I had a grade 3 astrocytoma going through my entire temporal lobe, I was so scared, I sent my scans to the best oncology centers in the states to get three different diagnosis, I stuck with Barrows and Mayo, stored my sperm because wife an I wanted 1 more child, but that split into triplet(another story)….I did a craniotomy to debulk half of tumor, then right into conformal radiation for 6 weeks, my cancer was doubling in size each month so went right into a year of 3 chemo cocktail, I am documented in the AMA journal……..fight the has been over 15 years
