This to me was a baffling word. What's STAGE IV? So off to Google to find the answer but its not as I thought.
Carcinoma in situ (early cancer that is present only in the layer of cells in which it began).
Stage I, Stage II, and Stage III
Higher numbers indicate more extensive disease: greater tumor size, and/or spread of the cancer to nearby lymph nodes and/or organs adjacent to the primary tumor.
The cancer has spread to another organ.
Now imagine you have been told that you have a STAGE IV cancer... you won't be able to comprehend that and all logic to why it must be you. Scary isn't it? Now I was told by someone dear to me that she had been diagnose as STAGE IV and had been going for regular chemotherapy.
It's been a shock to all and as her Doctor told her its Pure Unlucky perhaps. No matter how, all her family and friends are Praying for her recovery. I pray she remain strong and stay happy to overcome this internal foe with all her might.
May GOD stand by her and keep her strong. Forever with Love My Dear!
