The brain is your command center. It sends signals to all parts of your body on how to work, how to understand what you see and hear, and stores your memories. So, if damage is done to the brain â€“ through traumatic injury or cancer, the brain is not able to complete the commands. When a person has brain cancer there are several common treatments available: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or a combination of both (Avoiding treatment is not recommended). Another alternative, that is not as common and non-invasive, is â€œProton Therapy.â€

Taking any test is stressful, but the SAT is like the granddaddy of all stressors for a teenager. Parents just donâ€™t get it sometimes. They are putting pressure on their child to do well in school, get into a good college, and live up to their expectations. Kids want to be their own person, and believe it or not, they probably put more pressure on themselves than you can. They donâ€™t need you on their back telling them they arenâ€™t doing well â€“ they already know that. Those who are good students feel they could do better, and those who arenâ€™t know they arenâ€™t. You donâ€™t have to stay on their back to push them further. Donâ€™t underestimate your child!
