    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Does anyone survive stage IV metastatic breast cancer that has spread to the bones/marrow? We're brca 2 triple negative and had almost instant metastasis after a radical mastectomy, removal of a small tumor which had not spread to the lymph nodes and a full course of chemotherapy (not to mention accidental discovery of unrelated stage 1A ovarian cancer w/o spread and associated chemotherapy). We've now just begun chemo and have been offered a stage 1 PARP clinical trial. Does anyone go into long term remission on chemo with the above? Help.
