    oh yeah I was in a car wreck were this d-bag was doing 60mph in a 35mph zone and t-boned my boy who was driving. I was sitting shot gun. I saw it coming, I new the intersection because it was 6 houses down from my own. I always avoided that intersection but my friend would'nt listen when I asked him to go around the block to make a much safer left so yeah thx to both of you and that comes from my heart. Wear your F'n helmet, watch who you ride with and oh yeah one more thing there is no cure for cancer. I go by Lo Fi n I am 30 yrs old.

    I hate to say it but me too bro. Woke up one morning with weakness in my lower left leg. Later it changed to pins n needles all with in 24 hours. got a cat scan n it was positive so then I got a M.R.I. and than a Biopsy. They told me it was an astro"something" and then John Hopkins looked at it and said to get a P.E.T. Scan and found out it is in fact a Oligodendroglioma or something like that. It was estimated at three years old and that was in 2006. I get my treatment at U.V.A. We didn't go for removal right of the bat cuz the seizure meds were effective enough and mine too was benign in nature. So after some chemo (mild pill form) it slowed down for 3 years or so. It started growing again and seizure's came back pretty bad cuz the tumor is on my sensory cortex (right hemisphere/left leg). I got most of it removed (I want to stay active as long as possible so I told them not to get to close to the sensory cortex). I am doing fine, and have a scar a lot like yours, just in a different place. I want you to know that idk what to say... Oh I still ride and feel I should mention (as I am sure you have heard) that better treatment is supposed to be around the corner and even if this is not so, hope is not lost cuz cancer or cancer free we are all in the same boat only some let life turn them sour, don't be one of those people k. Btw any tumor in your brain is cancer benign or not. Benign means self contained (no finger like characteristics) or spreading out into different parts of the brain. We don't have the same doctors obviously and I don't mean anything by saying this, it is great that your case is benign for obvious reasons including the fact that removal in its entirety is more likely so you should feel lucky as crazy as it sounds. One day at a time right? I would like to hear from you if at all possible. I am just another rider out there only I stink lol. Peace.
