Medulloblastoma

My 19 year old brother was recently diagnosed with Medulloblastoma and I was curious to meet anyone who has this or knows someone who does or has had it. I'm so confused on what our/his future is. Can he live a full life with this after his radiation and chemo? Any answers are welcome! Doctors confuse me too much with what they try to explain to us so I decided it may be best to ask people that have went thru this or knows some who is. Thanks!

I am sorry to hear about your brother. Please see what I wrote for Vie0882. He needs to make a few decisions right now and they have to be right.

I'm so sorry about your baby. I know that treatment options are different depending on age. My brother is at MUSC in Charleston, SC right now for his radiation, which he started yesterday. He has a great Neuro-Oncologist doctor there who specializes in pediatric brain cancers especially Medulloblastoma. Her name is Dr. Breadlau (I believe I spelled it correctly). I'm not sure where you are located but I don't believe just an MRI can determine Medulloblastoma. I would find a hospital that specializes in it. Will pray for your precious newborn!
