My GBM Story: Meredith Moore, long term survivor and OBB board member
I was diagnosed in 2005 with a GBM IV. The first neurosurgeon was unable to fully resect the tumor, so I had a second resection one month later. Subsequently, I did a clinical trial for a brain infusion of IL13 (interleukin 13), standard radiation as part of the clinical trial, and then in 2006, I followed-up with chemotherapy.
I have no major side-effects from the diagnosis and treatment, no recurrences, and I live a normal life of a mom, spouse and business owner.

OurBrainBank is extremely important so that we can monitor and track the data from people going through GBM, in order to build a bigger set of data to better understand this disease, so that future patients can benefit from us.
