    Survival rates

    I would love to hear from anyone who has survived 3 or more years past their glioblastoma diagnosis. Please share your story with me. I am newly diagnosed and feeling very hopeless right now.

    Thank you

      I love that mantra "This is just unacceptable" I will be using this too...Love this...This should be the rally call for cancer becuase of the low amount of government funding for certian cancers..

      "THIS IS JUST UNACCEPTABLE" Love this..

      I am coming up on 1 year of my grade IV GBM diagnosis and doing well with no regrowth as of November. When the tumors were found I was knocking on Heaven's door. Luckily they were found and 100% resected. I agree with the person who posted that you are not a statistic. That is the main thing my oncologist kept telling me. Best of luck to you.

      I am a 5 year survivor (in October) of an Anaplastic Astrocytoma Grade III. My tumor was on the right front parietal lobe, effecting my speech & thought processes, and some days basic motor skills usually by the end of the day, or when I'm worn down. My balance has bad days as well...Think of a pin ball :) that's me in a door way...I used to get so mad at that, now I laugh! But I am doing so much better than my surgeon expected!
