Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)

Glioblastoma is an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain or spinal cord. Though it can occur at any age, it tends to occur more often in older adults. It can cause worsening headaches, nausea, vomiting and seizures. Glioblastoma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), can be very difficult to treat. It represents about 15 percent of all primary brain tumors. The MUSC Health Brain & Spine Tumor Program at Hollings Cancer Center treats GBM and other tumors through advances in medical and surgical therapies and a broadened array of clinical trials.

Glioblastoma Fund

Julian E. Smith had three bouts with four different types of cancer, including glioblastoma. He wanted to turn his condition from a negative to a positive, so he created a glioblastoma fund for cancer research at Hollings Cancer Center. While Julian is no longer with us, his amazing legacy lives on.
