Unfortunately, no one is immune to disease. The information, which appeared at the beginning of this year about the terrible illness of the famous Russian singer Zhanna Friske, shocked literally everyone: physicians diagnosed the ex-soloist "Brilliant" with a malignant tumor. And until the spouse of the star made an official confirmation of this, many RuNet users simply refused to believe that Jeanne Friske had brain cancer.
Very pleased that a large number of Russians did not remain indifferent to the singer's illness.
At present, one can confidently say that the events unfolding immediately after this sad news have been confirmed. Everyone wanted to support the variety star and her family morally and financially.
How dangerous is glioblastoma
Medical experts did not deny that Jeanne Friske had brain cancer. The singer is diagnosed with glioblastoma. This pathology belongs to the primary brain tumors. Specificity of treatment depends on what areas affected the disease. If the tumor appeared in the immediate vicinity of the cerebral cortex and the ailment can affect the centers responsible for movement and speech, then the symptoms manifest themselves immediately. In this case, the patient often loses consciousness, his coordination of movements is disturbed. In such cases, the person usually immediately runs to the doctor, the pathology in most cases can be stopped at the initial stage, and treatment here can be considered an effective measure.
However, if a malignant tumor is located in the deep structures of the cerebral hemispheres, then it is often very difficult to diagnose visually.
It should be emphasized that Jeanne Friske has brain cancer of the 4th degree.
If we talk about primary glioblastoma, then, as a rule, it is not accompanied by metastases. So said one of the doctors of neurosurgery Igor Borshchenko.
Many are still interested in the question of why Jeanne Friske had a brain cancer at all. Experts also commented on this.
So, for what reasons could Jeanne Friske have an oncology? Forecasts of doctors regarding the sources of the disease are as follows: some argue that the brain tumor in the singer appeared as a result of solar radiation. The fact is that the Russian pop star spent a lot of time working in Mexico, and later moved to Miami. Everyone knows that in the United States and "in the homeland of tequila" a bright and burning sun, which could adversely affect the body of the singer.
One of the specialists of neurosurgery, Andrey Grin, informed that in medical practice, patients who had had an operation to remove a malignant tumor often relapse after they went on vacation to warm countries.
Other experts say that glioblastoma in Jeanne Friske was due to the fact that the former soloist of "Brilliant" abused the use of rejuvenating procedures, the meaning of which was to produce stem cells in the spinal canal. Naturally, this increased the risk of the formation of malignant tumors, which usually occur immediately in several places.
Cerebral cancer Jeanne Friske, probably, could still foresee. There are cases when the disease does not cause any harm to the person at all, and sometimes there are simply "dead-end" situations when the doctor is unable to help his patient, and then there is only one thing - to transform the pathology into a remission, at least for a little longer his days . So said one of the specialists of neurosurgery Dmitry Okishev.
The singer did not immediately turn to doctors
According to the relatives of the pop diva, she did not immediately seek medical help. In the middle of last year, her headaches became frequent, she was constantly feeling drowsy and repeatedly lost consciousness. Only after these alarming symptoms Zhanna Friske began to show concern for her own health. She turned to the doctors, who diagnosed her with a terrible illness. At the same time, American specialists were sure that the singer would not live for two months. Close relatives, of course, they did not report this. However, later their expectations were not confirmed.
Difficult choice of clinic
For the relatives of Jeanne, the choice of clinic for treatment was not easy. They took her to Germany, to the USA, and also to the well-known oncological centers of our country. In the end, it was decided to treat the singer in New York.
The current state of health of the singer
The diagnosed Jeanne Friske shocked not only her family and friends, but the entire Russian public. Colleagues of the singer "on the shop" in every possible way tried to help her, and even took part in the fundraising campaign, which was required for treatment abroad. The fact is that you could not hesitate with him, because suddenly Jeanne's eyesight deteriorated, and she herself lost weight. It was decided to conduct treatment in the US. Almost immediately the singer was prescribed a course of chemotherapy, which, of course, had a positive effect on the health of the pop star. However, it is still too early to talk about the complete healing of Jeanne Friske. After the use of medications on the body of the singer appeared puffiness, and it is very difficult to recognize the former Jeanne.
Today, the singer's condition has stabilized, her health has improved somewhat, and she is seriously considering the question of further treatment strategies. She does not intend to conduct chemotherapy anymore.
US media reported that Russian pop diva decided to treat an experimental vaccine at one of the medical centers in Los Angeles.
Since the girl does not see well, she is forced to wear sunglasses. The reason for the deterioration of the singer's vision is obvious: Jeanne Friske is sick with brain cancer. A malignant tumor certainly affects the optic nerve. As soon as the physicians manage to reduce the area of the lesion, the vision will be restored - so the specialists say.
It should be stressed that doctors already have certain successes in this direction. The probability that it is possible to completely "overcome" an oncological disease exists.
The family of Jeanne Friske next to her
Today, next to the singer are the most dear to her people: mother - Olga Vladimirovna, husband - Dmitry Shepelev, son of Plato and a friend of the musical group "Brilliant" - Olga Orlova. All of them give all possible support to the singer.
The singer's father, Vladimir Borisovich, also informed Russian newspapers that his daughter had refused chemotherapy. As for the new drug, which is specially developed for the control of glioblastoma, it is known only its name - ICT-107 and the fact that very recently the vaccine was successfully tested in medical laboratories in Los Angeles.
Opinion of Russian experts
Russian doctors do not consider that it was necessary to send the singer for treatment "abroad", since similar vaccines were created by Russian scientists.
When the public actively discussed what happened to the singer, the city's oncologists expressed disapproval about the fact that Zhanna Friske preferred to be treated from their foreign colleagues, reproaching her for lack of patriotism. According to the chief oncologist of the Russian capital, in our country better treatment, in addition, completely free.
In addition to this, the experts recognized that the developed drugs belong to the category of experimental, therefore they are far from being always used and far from always effective.
