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.
