Elizabeth King Glioblastoma; Elizabeth King only has months left to live, She shares her terminal diagnosis journey.
I have months to live, perhaps two, perhaps some other number, the doctors won’t tell me, 44-year-old Elizabeth King said. They can’t. They do not know.
Elizabeth King is a mom and former educator living with glioblastoma.
For glioblastoma, in particular, the illness that claimed the lives of Ted Kennedy and John McCain, two elderly men in the twilight of their lives, forty-four feels dreadfully young for a terminal diagnosis in an otherwise robust, active body.
I have educated myself to either forget the present as it happens or not let it register at all over the course of many years. This started in fifth grade, the year that my father left under the pretense of a brief separation in order to start his academic career in California.
