Cancer has been in the news many times the last few weeks affecting people in government, movies, music and sports. Though I want cancer to be in the headlines this is certainly NOT what I want to see. I want to see how we are making strides to have better prevention and find cures.
I wish Senator Kennedy and his family the best during this difficult time.
"Malignant gliomas are a type of brain cancer diagnosed in about 9,000 Americans a year — and the most common type among adults. It's an initial diagnosis: How well patients fare depends on what specific tumor type is determined by further testing. Average survival can range from less than a year for very advanced and aggressive types — such as glioblastomas — or to about five years for different types that are slower growing."
