Today, I have the honor of celebrating the woman who saved my life as #afaceofstrength! 🧠💙💛

Dr. Linda Liau was my #neurosurgeon. She performed a successful #craniotomy resulting in a gross total resection of a malignant #oligodendroglioma #braintumor on 12/9/14.

The tumor was quite large by the time it was discovered following a #grandmalseizure.

The detailed imaging that was done at #uclahealth via a #functionalmri (in addition to several other tests) resulted in a #brainmap which revealed the tumor was spread across...
3/3 left frontal and temporal lobes impacting my right-side motor function and speech.

Looking back, I can honestly say that although I was about to have #brainsurgery, I was at peace because I knew I was in good hands.

🚨Tweetorial: NTRK 101 🚨Given the data discussed at @asco #ASCO2019 & @sno #SNO2019 on #NTRK fusions in primary brain tumors & brain mets, I thought we could review the background of these fusions, how to find them, and then look at potential options for tx. #btsm
<Disclaimer: I’m a speaker for Bayer (larotrectinib) and a subI for the STARTRK trial using entrectinib. I also have ongoing research work w @carisls > I’m keeping this as bias-free as possible though. Ok, next...
With the increase in tumor profiling & expanded options using #RNAseq, it seems like it is getting easier to find an #NTRK fusion. It can easily feel like Christmas when you do! 🎄 Just remember that an #NTRK MUTATION is not 🚫 fusion. They aren’t = & treatments aren’t the same.
