Glioblastoma was responsible for the death of Sean Whitesell, the husband of Good Day LA anchor Maria Quiban.
The Midday Sunday program is a 30-minute show, split into three segments. The first segment is above this article.
Visiting today along with Maria is Tim Cloughesy, M.D., Sean's physician and the director of the UCLA Neuro-Oncology Program. Maria and Dr. Cloughesy talk about how to recognize symptoms and how to find appropriate medical care, as well as support for the patient's family.
Glioblastoma was a factor in the deaths of Broadway singer Ethel Merman; Robert Moog, the inventor of the modern musical synthesizer; Senator Ted Kennedy and Beau Biden, the son of United States Vice-President Joe Biden.
