Not sure whether this is "typical" or not, but I had a friend who was diagnosed in August of one year and passed the following October, so a little over one year in her case.  She started with tumor removal in the brain and underwent extensive chemo and radiation therapy for several months.  All indications were the cancer had stopped growing until the last few months.  Hope this helps...
