  • Hi Lola48

    welcome to the online community. So sorry to hear about your Dad's situation. Sounds like he's full of fighting spirit.

    A GBM4 diagnosis is cruel and we were warned with my husband that there is a higher risk of strokes. Its so hard to watch them go through this.

    How are you holding up?  Please make sure that you take time to look after yourself too here. 

    I've found this group and Carers only forum - Macmillan Online Community a great source of support over the past year since my husband's diagnosis. There's always someone here who "gets it."
