As many of you already know Angela was diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiforme (brain cancer). As part of the “Standard of Care” she previously had brain surgery to remove the two tumors. After the surgery, she started a combination of oral chemotherapy pills (Temodar) and 5 days per week radiation at Moses Cone Cancer Center in Greensboro, NC.
This past week was her final treatment and we could not be happier to close out this phase of her treatment for Glioblastoma multiforme (brain cancer).
As part of the end of treatment, Angela graduated by ringing a bell. In attendance were the radiation technologists and support staff (Emily, Heather, Heather, Anna & Toni)
We won’t miss the early morning drives into Greensboro for the roughly 10-minute treatments. However, we will miss the exceptional care we received from:
- Dr. Manning and Alison Perkins, PA
- Radiation department nurses (special shout out to Nurse “Sam”)
The radiation technologists and support staff (Emily, Heather, Heather, Anna & Toni)
Linda Carter at the radiation registration desk.
You have all played an important role in executing the treatment plan for my wife. Your welcome, empathy, compassion, and care have added immeasurably to the difficulty my wife faced each day while receiving her radiation treatment for Glioblastoma multiforme. Thank You!
What’s Next for Angela’s Standard of Care
In about 4 weeks Angela will start a series of cycles 0f Temodar (oral chemotherapy). She will take 5 days of chemotherapy. Then be off for 28 days.
