Glioblastoma Malform GBM - anyone with experience, friends of?

Hello,
just wondering if there are any active users here with experience in GBM? My Mom (69) has grade 4 and she's just finished her last radiation treatment, wondering what to expect now.  I'm here in Australia and she's in the US....I just got back from spending 2 months with her.
Many thanks, A

Welcome to the community @AG1972 Smiley Happy

 

There are a few people here who have had experience with GBM, or have had family members with such. Hopefully one will see this and respond Heart

 

How is your mum doing?

 

Cheers,

Kate

Hi Kate,

 

She's okay so far, she was recently tested for the genetic Mgmt gene and she has it which I understand is a good thing, but it's all very scary and very difficult when she's in US and I'm in Australia ;-(

 

thanks for asking, Amy
