Actually, the sinus infection thread led me to start this. A lovely young ballerina from my pre-pro company is battling brain cancer. She literally dropped to the floor without warning in her home ten days ago and was taken to the ER. They found a 5cm brain tumor at the base of her brain in the back.... She has had 2 surgeries, and they will start chemo in 2 weeks. I am just grateful she survived the 2 major brain surgeries. She is a strong girl, but this kind of thing is brutal to say the least. Her only symptoms were constant headaches that were diagnosed as sinus and allergy issues. I didn't want to put that on the sinus thread for obvious reasons.... I wondered if any of you have had experience with brain cancer/tumors in young people. What are her chances? Here is a photo of her: http://www.pbase.com/rcalmes/image/118291922 She is only 16, and she is a lovely girl. Her name is Anna. Your prayers and best wishes are greatly appreciated.
