Stage lV Renal Cell Carcinoma, Interleukin 2 therapy anyone?

My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer. they removed his left kidney and lymph nodes around it. It has spread to two lymph nodes in his chest. The original plan was to go in and excise those as well then go on medication to reduce the chance of recurrence. Since he is so young (34) they want to try a more aggressive treatment of Interleukin 2 therapy and a facility in Chicago. Does anyone have any experience with this drug? I know the chances are slim but there is a chance of a total cure. I have a lot of faith and I know miracles can happen.
