Brain Center Awareness-Grey Matters Ongoing Blogtrain

Helping Melissa (Unique Styles) who's friend mom was 
diagnosed with Glioblastomas. This will be an on 
going open "Brain Train". If you run across this, and 
you'd like to make something relating to this awareness 
contact, Melissa Here on her blog to join this train.
There's not a lot out there about this kind of Cancer, so
here is some information.

Glioblastomas (GBM) are tumors that arise from astrocytes—
the star-shaped cells that make up the “glue-like,” or supportive tissue of the brain. 
These tumors are usually highly malignant (cancerous) because the cells 
reproduce quickly and they are supported by a large network of blood vessels.
 Glioblastomas are generally found in the cerebral hemispheres of the brain, 
but can be found anywhere in the brain or spinal cord.
 Glioblastomas are usually highly malignant—a large number of tumor cells 
are reproducing at any given time, and they are nourished by an ample blood supply. 
Dead cells may also be seen, especially toward the center of the tumor. 
Because these tumors come from normal brain cells, it is easy for them 
to invade and live within normal brain tissue. 
However, glioblastomas rarely spreads elsewhere in the body.
                                                                       There are two types of glioblastomas:

Primary, or de novo: These tumors tend to form and make their presence 
known quickly. This is the most common form of glioblastomas; it is very aggressive

Secondary: These tumors have a longer, somewhat slower growth history, but still are very 
aggressive. They may begin as lower-grade tumors which eventually become higher grade. 
They tend to be found in people 45 and younger, and represent about 10% of glioblastomas.

If you decide to participate,you will be added to the list. 
If you do not have a blog Melissa will add your part to her blog for download. 
You can make whatever you like to make scrap kits, clusters, templates, or word art.
 Melissa would like to keep this FTU so everyone can use these.
