I am from the Kidney Cancer discussion board as I am 11 months post-op for Stage I RCC. However, 4 weeks ago my Dad was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer, spread to liver and brain. He has since had 5 radiation treatments for the brain tumor. He is being treated at the Duke Cancer Center. Most days he refused to eat or drink. He now weighs 106 lbs. I just wish there was something I could do for him. He is very depressed and wants to die. He don't seem to have any fight left in him. Is this normal for Stage IV? Does anyone have any suggestions for me as to how I cope with this. I am devastated!!!
