As of June 2010 I was diagnosed with cancer stage 4 called Glioblastoma, stage 4 is the worst you can have , I was taken in for emergency surgery to have the tumor removed the next morning, from that I developed Epilepsy. The Following year March 2011 the tumor had grown back to its original size and I under went my second surgery, this time during surgery chemotherapy was givin directly to the tumor useing what they call chemo disk, chemo disk are thin disk-shaped wafers containing chemotherapy drugs that can be placed near a tumor during surgery. The wafers break down over time, releasing chemotherapy drugs.

(Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and most aggressive malignant primary brain tumor in humans, involving glial cells and accounting for 52% of all functional tissue brain tumor cases and 20% of all intracranial tumors. Despite being the most prevalent form of primary brain tumor, GBMs occur in only 2–3 cases per 100,000 people in Europe and North America. According to the WHO classification of the tumors of the central nervous system‎, the standard name for this brain tumor is "glioblastoma"; it presents two variants: giant cell glioblastoma and gliosarcoma. Glioblastomas are also an important brain tumor in canines, and research continues to use this as a model for developing treatments in humans.
