7. Too early for that crap...
... but unfortunately I can't blame them for expecting it. Life expectancy with a glioma is < 1 year, depending on the type. If he's very lucky, he'll take my friend's path and have a couple clean years after chemo before a more aggressive recurrence and loss of function shortly thereafter. I really wish him the best - not just survival, but keeping up his great ability.
