Random thoughts of a Brit living in the Imperial Valley of California

Another Sad Day

without comments

During my research into treatments and procedures for brain tumours I read many personal web pages documenting struggles against brain tumours, most were unfortunately for people who had already passed but there were two that were putting up a good fight. Although I don’t know either person it did feel like we were all in this together so I am saddened today to read that one of them died over the weekend. The irony is that she was tumour-free, and had been for many months. Rather it was the radiation treatment that killed her, eventually causing the destruction of her brain’s healthy cells. Others may disagree, but its clear to me that a brain tumour is one of the absolute worst diagnoses you could get, its a real death sentence, and with not much time to get ready for it. And as the brave woman who lost her fight this weekend shows, even if you are able to get rid of it, the cure is likely just as bad as the disease.
