IamA Teen with an extremely rare type of brain cancer, and recieving proton beam therapy to treat it, AMA!
Hi y'all, I'm a teen currently being treated for brain cancer with proton beam therapy after having two craniotomies and a ventriculoperitoneal shunt installed into my brain to firstly get rid of as much tumour as possible and to deal with the ensuing hydrocephalus caused by damage in surgery :)
Am doing this because I want to both answer questions on a somewhat touchy subject that most don't feel comfortable discussing, and because I enjoy talking about this issue because it helps me deal with it :D
Don't hold back, if you have a question, just come out with it, I'm not particularly sensitive haha

I know this may not seem like much proof but that's the side view of the tumour at initial diagnosis, I'm not gonna post my medical documentation here for obvious reasons
