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.
I'm so sorry to hear about this-- Move fast! Stage IV there is no time to think! do all you can-- I lost my Mother that had just turned 60 she was told she was in Stage IV June 22nd 2011 and they gave her 3-4 months we tried everything!! she passed away Dec 11th 2011---It was so hard for me to watch the suffering.

Keep the faith! I know about this drug and saw something about it on You Tube and a MAN OVER CAME his Battle and he was also young.

God Bless you!!
