  •  my sister in law was just diagnosed with this (0+ / 0-)

    a couple of months ago, after blacking out and having suffered headaches for a long time. She is unemployed and my brother too has been unemployed for a long time due to the aftereffects of surgery for pancreatitis.
    I kno she is going to die although the medical people have been feeding her false hope. She's so young (early 40s) that I understand why. She's had surgery and they took out a lot but the thing had tendrils and has spread further. Now it's radiation and chemo. She lives in a rural area where alternative treatments are unavailable, and of course has no money to pay for them and can no longer drive due to seizures anyay. I don't think there's anything out there that ill save her life, but I think there probably are alternative treatments that could make what she has left bearable.
