I am sorry for the stage IV dx. Dont lose hope! There are many Stage IVers out there who are NED! You are only in the beginning of the journey. Your body could respond wonderfully to treatment. Try and heal yourself in the process of treatment. Good food choices and exercise are just as important as the treatment from the meds. You got this!
