I hadn't looked at all the speeches when i posted below but I want to add that the one given by the Honourable George Smitherman was good...
A tumour is a tumour whether labelled benign or cancer really, and I found his speech did address the whole thing about having timely, latest art type thing for treatment. I know that even five years ago, three years ago for myself, I had no idea about any of this sort of thing. I had not been diagnosed with An, I had no idea what kinds of treatments were available for cancer beyond surgical ops that were invasive with a scalpel, never mind a benign tumour called an Acoustic neuroma or a vestibular neuroma of NF I or II. I was fortunate in that I found out about treatment options for my An very quickly after hearing I had one, when I logged onto the Anac board and this board here, Anausa. Wonderful thing the net and boards like this.
Many thanks to all who run this place and post. I know it has helped so very many.
happy thoughts to all
