    What a rotten birthday present you got! So sorry. Let us know how we can help you. I am Stage IV also, and I am 6+ years out from my diagnosis and stable. None of us have an expiration date stamped on our foot, so don't lose hope or give up your fight. Research has brought us many more ways to treat cancer these days. Hang on to your faith, strength, and hope for the road ahead. Best wishes to you!

    It certainly was NOT the gift I was hoping for! I'm glad to see that you are still here (yay!) and will fight to not only live but also thrive. Thank you for your wishes, and your message of hope; it's so encouraging.
