    I'm not an expert in advice for cancer treatment, but can relate in that I'm going through the same with my sister. She was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer 2 years ago and has had good results with a newer drug called Ibrance. No radiation or chemo, just hormonal therapy. It's a chronic condition at stage 4 and we also are simply buying time. There are great advances occurring in the treatment of cancer. I hope your Mom can be the beneficiary of that as well. I will tell you that but for the fact my sister sought out a 2nd opinion, the treatment regiment would have been dramatically different. Wishing you and your family the best news possible.

      Thanks, we haven't gone for a second opinion and my mom's is colon cancer (for the second time) stage 4 and she was diagnosed in June 2015. The traditional chemo stopped working and now she is on a drug called Lonsurf. She has 4 tumors and the largest one is growing. Hoping for good results tomorrow. I am glad your sister is having good results with lbrance, I've never heard of it but will look it up. I am wishing the best for her and for you & your family. Thanks so much for your response.
