  • Question: My 4-year-old daughter has a brainstem glioma; it is a jelly type. What does that mean? She has just finished 6 weeks of radiation therapy with good results. Is there anything else that can be done?

    They don't use that terminology here. It sounds like what we call a diffuse brainstem glioma. Ask the doctor if that is what he meant. Al Musella, DPM Musella Foundation
