Hello,

My next door neighbor, who is more of a sister to me, has been diagnosed with lung, liver, breast and bone cancer. She has goes every three weeks for chemo and has been doing this since January of this year. She is doing really well with the chemo and has not been sick at all. She has lost most of her hair but what is left is actually growing back. I just want to know what the survival rate and life expectancy is for this cancer. It is the fast growing type that she has.

Thanks

Prognosis for metastatic cancer is very poor.
When vital organs like lungs and liver are affected, the life expectancy is shortened to months or even weeks.
