I just found out that I will not be able to be at my computer at the time of the Webinar. Is there any way for me to view the Webinar sometime later today? I understand it would no longer be interactive, but is there a recorded video I could view? I was looking forward to this event, and really hope I can still view it later on. Thank you very much!

What news are there concerning the prognosis for tectal gliomas after the onset of puberty? When a biopsy cannot be done – how sure can one be that it is a grade I tumor?

My 17 year old son had a benign ganglioglioma removed on 10-20-14. The entire tumor was removed and he’s made good progress. Clear MRI’s since. He’s been back to school, job and baseball for many months. However, he has been dealing with migraines (he did not experience headaches of any kind before. He did have simple partial seizures). Some migraines are 20 days straight. In addition to being on 3 anti seizure/migraine meds, Doctors introduced 2 different steroids during each of these episodes. The first broke the migraine but he still had 10 headaches per day. The second migraine he was prescribed a new steroid, this resulted in no change.

Just wondering if this is common? If so, is it tricky to figure out the correct medication combination that works? Any other options I should look into?

I have a ten year old with IDH1 mutation, what is the significance with this mutatation in pediatrics? She has 2 low grade diffuse astrocytomas.

Has it started? I am seeing just the title screen and no sound

My 3 yr old grandson has Pilomyxoid Astrocytoma. Is there any talk on clinical trials on this yet? Can this transform to a higher grade?

seems that there may be some technical error happening? No audio since symptoms slide.

There is no sound!!

experiencing some technical issues? no sound?

Last year, my daughter (7years old at the time) had a ganglioglioma tumor removed. It was all removed and has showed no sign of regrowth. Physically, she is very well (besides the occasional migraine)… But emotionally, she is all over. I struggle with knowing if Is it common to be stressed and frustrated… Is this a tumor/surgery thing… Or just a “normal kid” issue.
