I found the article to be very interesting, and I hope you will read it by clicking on the link above.
But what was most informative to me, was the video that was referenced in the article explaining how cancer works in metastasis. Here is a direct link to the video mentioned in this article:
When I allow my brain to go to this negative place, which is rare thankfully, I am scared to death (pun not intended) of how much time of "prolonged life" I actually have. And no one knows what that is.
And the "prolonging" is to give me more time with loved ones, but more importantly, more time with the hope that some new miracle treatment will be found to give me even more time, or perhaps, miraculously, a cure for this cancer that at this time is, and will most likely be, terminal. It is the ugly truth I am accepting of, but am smart enough not to allow it to consume me. But for this moment in time, I will be that vulnerable, Stage IV, terminal cancer patient and lay it out there like it is.
