brain metastases survivors

Hello all,
I'm new to this board today and I'm sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section.

After several months of headaches which have got progressivley worse my close friend had a scan this week to be given the devastating news she has a tumor on her brain.

On Wednesday an MRI confirmed she also had a tumor on her lung. Today she goes for a biopsy.

However, drs have told her that they are certain it is cancer and the tumor on the brain is secondary to the lung.

We are obviously devastated and in shock. She is 35 years old with small children and only had a few headaches.

Drs won't given any more information until after the biopsy. However I have done the terrible thing of 'googling' and can not find any positive outcomes so far.

I;m hoping that by coming to the survivors network I may find somebody who has lived through this so we have a little hope that it is possible.

Thank you in advance
