Leanne is a 33 year old oncology nurse and mother of 2 young girls who was recently diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiforme. This is the most devastating and aggressive form of brain cancer. She had a craniotomy on Jan 7 for what at the time was believed to  be a benign mass.  Unfortunately once the surgeon was in surgery he saw a much different situation.  The surgery has left Leanne with right sided facial paralysis, deafness, and has had to have her eye permanently sewn shut. She and her family are currently traveling back and forth to MD Anderson for  diagnostics and treatment which is a four hour commute. Her husband, Nick, is an EMT and is unable to work most shifts because being away from his family for 24 hours is impossible. Any help to this young family would be a blessing and greatly appreciated.

So Leanne powered through radiation therapy and has concord five rounds of Chemo therapy. She just finished a very uplifting visit to MD Anderson. They did her normal MRI and on this scan there was Shrinkage of the Tumor since the last one two months ago!!!! With that being said the doctor doesn't feel Leanne is strong enough to go back to work just yet. We are so thankful for everything that has been done for us through this trying time in our lives.

Saw Dr Mcaleer today. We received back the patho from Texas Children's hospital. Their diagnosis is grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma. It gets very confusing but basically we have known it's a glioma just not sure where it originated or grade, and that's what the name changes are about lol. Dr mcaleer said she feels it is a mix of grade 2 and 3 and from radiation perspective I am receiving my max dose anyway so no changes to that treatment. She is going to talk to my med onc and this may mean we need to start the chemo after radiation is over instead of the wait and watch we were planning on. Day 21 of 30 DONE! RAWR!
