Voices Against Brain Cancer Responds to a Mother’s Successful Fight Against her Glioblastoma
Date:1/19/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2013

On January 19, Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC) congratulates Heather Knies, who beat two brain tumors and is now cancer free and the mother of a seven-month-old daughter.

Knies was diagnosed with two brain tumors at age 24. ABC News states that while this is on the young side, doctors say that people can get brain cancer at any age, even as infants. Normally, a glioblastoma (the type of brain tumor Knies was diagnosed with) is essentially a death sentence. But eight years later, the article reports that the 32-year-old is neurologically intact and her MRIs are coming up completely clear of cancer.

Knies has also given birth to her daughter Zoe, a fact that has astonished doctors at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona, considering that radiation therapy and chemo can render patients infertile, reports ABC News.

Knies’ surgeon, Dr. Robert Spetzler, said that “in his 35 years as a neurosurgeon in the United States… he has never seen such a triumph against a stage 4 glioblastoma,” in the article from ABC News.

Scott Darrohn, a spokesperson for VABC, congratulates Knies on her recovery. “Being diagnosed with a glioblastoma is a devastating circumstance,” Darrohn said. “But Heather Knies has proven that people can overcome even the worst diagnosis.” Darrohn added that keeping a positive outlook on your situation can sometimes make all the difference.

VABC has a wide variety of initiatives in place for brain cancer research, awareness and support. The organization’s research grants fund cutting-edge research programs that will have a monumental impact on the diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer. VABC current
