    Oh, that's too bad.

    A common course with brain tumors is treatment, some months of pretty normal life, and then a final decline. (Ted Kennedy matched that pattern, actually.) I hope Sabol does better than that.

    I pray his is like my brother's and can be removed safely ... my brother completed one tour in Afghanistan as a senior medical officer and is scheduled for another deployment this year.

    Odd. Primary tumors originating in the brain are pretty rare. Best wishes to him.

    That sucks.

    I remember when I saw the headline I assumed it was his dad, Ed, who was ill, since he's much older.

    Doesn't sound good, unfortunately. If the initial treatment is chemo and radiation, that likely means that it is an inoperable tumor. That may be due to the type of tumor, location (near large vessels or brain stem) or large size. If they are using chemo/XRT to shrink the tumor before attempting surgery, that may be the best case scenario.

    Best of luck Steve. Keep fighting.
