My friend was having headaches on and off assumed migraines. The headaches were so bad I took him to the ER. Three hours later, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Three days later a biopsy was done. Four days later, the news: brain cancer on the left temporal part of his brain.

I have a primary brain tumor and have had three surgeries. I am now out eight years, and am having a great life. My hair is slowly coming back after the radiation. I know now that I must enjoy every day that is granted.

My husband has brain cancer he has had it for 2 years and has had three surgeries. The tumor is on the back of his head this time and the first two were on the front of his head. The doctor does not know really what to do now and said that my husband is living on borrowed time

I am 35, diagnosed originally with breast cancer. Three years on headaches and dizziness for a month, then had two mini-strokes with right hand tingling and travelled to face, lost speech and thankfully returned one hour later. Now I have metastatic brain cancer diagnosed by an MRI, and I have 6-12months to live.

My friend has brain cancer and has been to surgery 3 times in the last week. The first time the tumor was removed then the second time was for to "clean up" a bleed, then the 3rd time for yet another clean up and catheter inserted for draining purposes. Prior to all this she had numbness in her left arm then she passed out at the gym. That was only a week and a half ago when the whole nightmare began. Now my friend has almost no use of her left arm and 40% use of her left leg. She talks well and seems very aware of all that is going on.
