Day 4 of Brain Tumor Awareness month and today I decided to share a little bit of data (that I could find) about the type of brain tumor I have: Gangliocytoma.  My understanding is that this is a very rare, but benign, brain tumor that makes up about 1% of all brain tumors.

Sadly, a few of the “main” brain tumor org’s I have found do not carry much, if any, data about Gangliocytoma.  Yes, they are rare.  Yes, they are benign.  But, it is still a type of brain tumor and the data that *is there should be included.  I think that is one of my biggest frustrations since diagnosis:  inclusion of *all types of brain tumors.

Anyway.  Below is one of the (few) links I have found in my research.  I pray that more data will be collected!
