Greg passed away on June 7 in the evening.

He was on Hospice care only for 5 days and conscious almost until the end.

The pain was not so strong, so he needed morphine only twice - a day before his death and at noon time on 6/7.

I think that he did not suffer a lot and this make me feel a little bit better.

He was very courageous and strong man willing to fight till the end. He used to walk every day - almost till 1 week before his death - using a cane at the end, and counting steps and miles.

But the progression of the decease in brain was too fast and it could not be handled by the common immunotherapy and radiation treatments.

I would like to thank everyone on this site for support and information that was published. It was very helpful for me in the battle that we had.

Good luck to everyone who is undergoing treatment currently.

So sorry to hear this. Thank you for letting us know. I have often wondered how the end will be. I'm sure it's different for everyone, but I hope he did not feel too much pain.

You were with him and strong to the end and he loved you for it.  May the sweet memories take away some of the pain.

Strength and Courage,
