    That is truly terrible. Certainly an illness you'll never need to concern yourself with.

    That really sucks... so sorry for them. Can't help wondering if there is a genetic element to brain tumours; a girl I went to uni with lost her father and brother that way within 18 months of each other. Docs here have any comments?

    There are many different types of brain tumours, and they can arise from the various brain linings as well as the brain itself. Some are associated with inherited disorders (eg neurofibromatosis - “the Elephant man”. ) Others are just metastases from primary tumours elsewhere. They can be indolent or aggressive for various reasons. I always shake my head when i hear “let’s raise money to cure brain cancer “ There are so many types that there is no single type of cure

    225mm of rain since midnight here. Got up at 5 to clear drains, drain pool, etc. Made no difference. Six inches of water flooding off the road through the front gate, flooding the pool, tennis court, and front yard, carrying mud with it. Road flooded on the way to work - luckily, I drive a Yaris - ploughed straight through

    Normally the pool looks like that after you've swum in it

    Unfortunately, I’ve to live with all these.. a year and a half ago my dear friend’s sister in law succumbed to her brain tumour. She had a primary tumour in her brain. Dr. Charlie Teo did a couple of surgeries on her and managed to extend her life for 15yrs..
    At the same time, I have a close family diagnosed with lung cancer (non- smoker) that had metastasises to the brain. luckily there are many pharmaceutical companies trying to develop targeted treatments for this. With hope there will be more n more people able to turn this from a death sentence to a chronic illness...

    It all happens too fast. What's needed is curbing on the road, but the GCCC refuses to do it
