My mother of only 43 was diagnosed last year with Stage4 Colon cancer, that quickly got to her Liver then spread to her Lungs, and this Just in Back and Brain. All while undergoing Chemo Therapy. Her doctor has tried different medicine as well as a clinical trial. What else will help her. The Cancer is taking over her whole Body.... What is the typical/average life spand for someone in her place? The Doctor will not give an estimate.
