Question Malignant Mass Behind Heart

My son-in-law was just diagnosed with a mass hehind the heart that is malignant and is inoperable. There are also spots on his liver. He is scheduled for a Pet Scan to determine treatment. Is there any positive hope for his future? He is only 57 years old but has type 1 diabetes.

Thank you for your prayers. This is our only hope until after the pet scan that is scheduled in 2 days.
