Dr. Karen Fink, a Neuro-Oncologist and Jeanneane Maxon, Patient: Glioblastoma (GBM)



Jeanneane Maxon, 41, was living the life of a “work hard, play hard” non-profit executive in Washington, D.C. However, her migraine headaches which she had suffered from since age six were becoming increasingly debilitating. A subsequent MRI revealed a lime-sized tumor in her brain which would ultimately be diagnosed as glioblastoma (GBM), a rare and aggressive form of cancer, but the most common type of primary brain cancer in adults. Jeanneane and her physician, Dr. Karen Fink, a Neuro-oncologist at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas join me to help raise awareness of GBM, and the latest treatments and technology available to help treat this debilitating disease.
