First of all, thank you all for the time and work put into this site. I wish I had thought to look for it when my sister first got sick. This is the scariest stuff and it helps to see other families fighting and winning.
My sister was diagnosed with Astrocytoma 2 / 3 back in April 2016 which was determined to be Anaplastic Astrocytoma 3.
I don't understand what she meant but she said her tumor had "favorable" mutations.
She had 95% removal of the tumor at Sloan-Kettering, then moved on to radiation and chemo. She finished chemo in September(?) of last year.
All of her MRIs look good and her last one on 12/18/2017 was still clear.
My questions are:
1) Right now she is not really doing anything for maintenance. Would it be worth looking into a Ketogenic diet or meditation or anything? I would like to have her try the ketogenic diet, but I have read mixed things about it. Also, I want to push her to do this, but it's not my choice and it's hard to remember that.
2) I've read that Asctrocytoma conveys a huge risk to siblings and a lesser risk to parents. Would it be worth having my brother and parents get an MRI?
