Hello @1myhope and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

I found some members who have mentioned taking Avastin, albeit not specifically for meningioma, who I am hoping can join you and share their experience related to Avastin itself. Those members are @katherinehayes and @imallears.

Have you started on Avastin or considering it?

Has your tumor returned or is the first treatment you will be having (first-line treatment)? How are you doing?
