There are no words... but I want to try

This has been the worst year of my life since hearing the news I have brain cancer at 27 caused by a malignant brain tumour. I have been diagnosed as having an Anaplastic Astrocytoma in my left temporal posterior frontal lobe. It Is aggressive, cannot be cured and treatment aims to slow down its growth. I have been through a great deal of physical and mental pain resulting in a major brain operation and will be receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy very soon. My future is uncertain and prognosis is generally poor. Research in this area is seriously lagging behind other cancers so please please give all you can to this worthwhile cause on my justgiving page.


  1. I see you are approaching your five year mark. Outstanding. Best wishes. Carol.

  2. Oh my goodness. It's like I'm reading the blog of my own husband Richard! He was diagnosed with an anaplastic astrocytoma in his left temporal lobe at the age of 25 and now he is 27 and it is returning with a vengeance. We are now trying to find ways to manage it or even cure it. Thank you so much for writing your blog and giving us hope. Claire
