Today is my 30 years since my diagnosis of a brain stem asytrocytoma, and i am still here. I am living proof the even the best doctors are not always right. I am happy, but wish there were more long term studies on brain tumor survivors. I have lost the use of my right and most of my leg, but had a great night last night with 20 deaf-blind adults. made me realize its great to know I am not alone with brain tumor junk.
