“I found this book very useful in helping me understand this type of brain tumour, it’s impact on the sufferer and the way it is treated. The author is himself a sufferer and and the book is interspersed with a number of personal accounts of other people’s experiences of brain tumours, both their own and those of close family members.” ★★★★ Goodreads

A word from the author:

“This book is a guide to adult glioblastoma and anaplastic astrocytoma for patients and their loved ones. The two brain tumours that are considered to have short life expectancies, and life changing effects before, during and after any treatment. Through offering basic medical information about brain cancer, as well as information about treatment options, prognosis and impact, I hope to help those affected to understand these brain tumours as best they can.

“I hope to arm you with information that will form the basis for further research, for questions to oncologists, surgeons, doctors and support organisations. And I hope to illustrate, as best I can, what life and perhaps death can be like with these brain tumours. 

“Whatever you take away from this book, I hope to provide you with some support, knowledge and empowerment.”

This book is now available with Gideon’s first patient-centred book, Living Low Grade, about slower growing, life-limiting brain tumors.
