Hello. This is my first time doing something like this and I'm not really sre how to go about it but here goes. My father, age 59, has just been diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. The pathology report has not come back yet but the surgeon (who I am no longer impressed with) says in his opinion it is stage IV. No proof that it is in the lymph nodes but it has spread to his abdomen in what the Dr. called a sand speckle way. He said it doesn't look good but there is always hope. I'm desperate to find something to help him beat the odds. Can anyone offer advice or support or stories of others in a similar situation beating the odds ? Thanks so much.
