First time here, wondering if I can get some help about the condition that unfortunately my niece is dealing with. it's called Brain cancer grade 3, but I post the full note below this email under the signature. My questions are: what did the diagnosis find out? What is her survival chance? what is the most effective therapy for her?
Truly appreciate your help,
