Meet The Marlow Family

"The first signs of Glioblastoma were that he has forgotten things that he always remembered, and his voice sounded monotone."

About the Episode / Summary

Bill Marlow was diagnosed with glioblastoma last year and passed away soon after.  His children Karlie, Ben, Billy, and Joe share their experience through their father’s glioblastoma diagnosis, the rapid progression of the disease, and how their dad’s health quickly deteriorated until he passed away from the disease less than one year after being diagnosed.

Join us as our host, Amanda Lamb, talks to Karlie, Ben, Billy and Joe about their father – sharing her mother’s story along the way as well! Listen as Karlie, Ben, Billy, and Joe talk about what it was like hearing about their father’s glioblastoma diagnosis from doctors and how they stay strong now and keep his memory alive.


"When someone with glioblastoma loses his or her cognitive abilities, you are losing the person you loved, the one you had a connection with."
