Heartbreaking Discovery


Ted Kennedy has been diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor.

The 76-year-old was rushed to the hospital this past weekend with what family members thought was a stroke but ended up being a seizure caused by the malignant growth in his brain.

Malignant gliomas are a type of brain cancer diagnosed in about 9,000 Americans a year ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and the most common type among adults. It’s a starting diagnosis: How well patients fare depends on what specific tumor type is determined by further testing.

Average survival can range from less than a year for very advanced and aggressive types — such as glioblastomas — or to about five years for different types that are slower growing.

So sad.

Our thoughts and positive energy go out to the Senator and his family.
