Default Glioblastoma won...

...not really RV related but my wife of 29 years did enjoy her RV-8 ride last last fall before the diagnosis...she passed away quietly this morning at our home.

The matter of dealing with GBM is difficult for patient and caregivers. The decline since diagnosis last December was relentless notwithstanding surgery and radiation/chemo treatment. It is a tough disease to fight and always wins except with some very young patients and even then many do not survive it.

I am relieved it is over for her and myself. She is at home with her family in heaven and will be missed by many left behind on this planet.

So sorry to hear this David. I can only imagine the toll it has taken on you as well in the last few months giving care and watching her slowly slip away.

Cherish that happy memory of her flying with you in the RV...
