    Celebration (Cancer is shrinking): After the gamma knife treatment, my grandmother's tumor has gotten smaller. She used to have to go in for checkups every 6 months and that has now been prolonged to 2 YEARS.

    Radiation (Gamma Knife): After her surgery, my grandmother underwent Gamma Ray radiation to try and defeat the remaining portion of her tumor. It has slowly started to shrink.
