Sister Has Pancreatic Cancer

Hi. My sister has pancreatic cancer. She lives in Western Canada and I live on the East Coast of the U.S. I went to visit her in October for a week to help her while she was getting chemo. The challenge I’m facing is that I don’t really know what is happening. She is being very optimistic about “kicking cancer to the curb.” At the same time she has said that the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes and the liver. She has not said she has stage such and such cancer. Does anyone else have a family member like this? Does anyone permanently recover from what seems like stage IV cancer? I have only the internet to give me information. Thank you.
