the most aggressive form of brain cancer.
Prognosis according to statistics are on
average 6 months to one year.
The books say this disease primarily effects
adults over the age of 50.
"younger patients tend to get a better
prognosis than the elderly."
Young Adults Surviving Glioblastoma (YASG)
was formed because people under the age of 50 are effected by GBM.
We are here to inspire those young adults
in their teens, twenties, and thirties,(and beyond) that do get
diagnosed with this disease. By sharing our stories I feel we can
be a source of helpful information to those recently diagnosed with
I know that the one thing I wanted after leaving the hospital
with this diagnosis was somebody close to my age, (25 at diagnosis)
to talk to who was going through the same disease. I jumped on the
internet, looked at my disease and found nothing but negative statistics
and pessimistic outlooks. YASG is here in the name of hope and optimism.
After reading our profiles please feel free
to contact us via email if you are in the same boat, have questions,
or need a friend.
We're here, alive, breathing
and surviving GBM!
