There are exceptions and some treatments that have been successful for some people.  My wife was 66 when diagnosed, had radiation, chemo, two tumors with surgery and 2 clinical trials.  She is now 74 with no tumors visable.  Her recoveries after the tumors (and a cyst the size of a golf ball with the second) was excellent.  She then developed hydrocephelis with an eventual shunt and side effects and recovery have been relatively bad.  But she was older when diagnosed and she has lived 8 years now the last nearly three tumor free.
