Treatment Information

On Monday, August 4th, Ellen met with her oncologist to map out her treatment for the glioblastoma multiforme tumor she had surgically removed on July 15, 2008 . She will receive a round of radiation therapy along with chemotherapy for a period of six weeks. Ellen is a patient of Dr. Nicholas Avgeropoulos at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Orlando, Florida. Following the first round of treatment, she will receive another MRI and they will evaluate the next step.   (God Speed Ellen...we are all rooting for you.)

Note: Shortly, Ellen will begin her diary and I, on occasion, will add updates to this blog about Ellen's treatment so that all her friends and extended family can get information quickly. Please feel free to pass this on to others who know and love Ellen and would like to be kept up to date. Thanks, Donna Musarra

Hi Cathy and Ellen - I have no idea what to say except that I'm so sorry you're going through this, and Mike and I want to let you know that you're in our thoughts and prayers - Melissa
