I am sad to know about your dad affected by brain tumor. Even i faced the same situation for my dad. If you are put up at Bangalore, i would request you to consult Dr. Ram Gopal Varma the nerosurgeon - M.S Ramaiah Memorial Hospitalm- Bangalore. Never & ever can see a Dr like that.

Pray god for your dad's quick recovery
