bone cancer

My grandpa was just recently diagnosed with bone cancer, and just last week had to have surgery on his hip to take out the tumor. he will start chemo in 7 to 10 days. I am just worried because when they did surgery they found out that it has spread to his liver lungs, and pancreas. Is there a positive outcome for this? i dont know too much about this kind of cancer and everyone seems to be keeping me in the dark about if anyone knows anything would you please let me know

Re: bone cancer

The fact that the disease has spread to the lungs, liver and pancreas is not good news.
If it were only on the bone he would have better chances of fighting this dreadful disease. I hope he does well with his treatments, keep strong.
