Rick, Thanks to the comments. It looks to me like you have a good chance of being cancer free at some point. I know that they say there is no cure for stage IV but I personnaly believe that if it is found early and attacked vigrously that ity can be cured. If not now researh will make it happen in the future and we just have to live long enough to get there.
I have learned a lot during my 8 1/2 year journey that I feel lucky to be able to share here with others. Hopefully I make it somewhat easierfor them than it was for me. Good Luck with your fight.
