Newly Diagnosed Brain Tumor grade 3

March 19, 2013 - Kirkwood, Pennsylvania

I am getting ready to start chemo and radiation in early April for a Grade 3 Astrocytoma. I am 45 and in general good health. I am not a candidate for surgery, so we are going to shrink this sucker! I've got good spirits and am a fighter. I am just concerned about working. I am primary bread winner as well as carry insurance at work. I'm paid through end of June as of yesterday. So, unsure what happens if we can't do the cobra payments. Hoping my husbands company will put me on his policy effective July 1. Other than that, and not being prepared with life insurance (we were just looking into it when this news came). I am going to beat this.
