Patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) are confronted with a very serious disease and suffer sooner or later from various physical, psychic, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms. This is a big challenge, not just for the patients, even their (caring) family members are forced to deal with this new life-changing situation.
