    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    My son is 41 and has no other major medical problems. His cancer has spread to his liver, diaphragm, and another section of his colon. Doctor gives him a year maybe 2 but no other options. Is there nothing else that can be done? How do I help him and the rest of my family?
