Discussing Brain Tumors

As Senator Ted Kennedy waits for word on the treatment of his brain tumor, a Wichita woman feels his pain. 32-year old Tempe Fitzpatrick was stunned last year when she learned she had a collection of blood the size of a golf ball on the left side of her brain.

Tempe has what is called an Arteriovenous Malformation, or AVM, which is a collection of blood from a vessel that has ballooned up. If it bursts, it could cause a stroke or possibly death.

Her doctor told her that her condition was something serious, something she should not take lightly.

"I couldn't believe it, because I feel fine," Tempe said.

She has been watching the news about Senator Kennedy.

"I was like, wow, he has kinda what I have," Fitzpatrick said.

Her condition is similar, because like Tempe, Kennedy's tumor is on the left side of the brain.

She said she knows Kennedy must be in shock just like she was when she learned of her condition. The collection of blood is slowly shrinking with radiation treatment. In time, it is expected to completely disappear.

Wesley oncologist Grant Rine said that Kennedy's condition may not have such good results.

"If this is a high-grade brain tumor then and it is not receptive then a
combo of chemo and radiation will give him some longevity but the survival
rate would be less than a year," Dr. Rine said.

Senator Kennedy is awaiting more test results before doctors determine what kind of treatment they will use.
