Dear turkey: Your sister has stage 4 breast cancer
. At this point, the cancer
may not be cured but it can certainly be treated. Hopefully, very effectively. It is impossible to predict how long a person may live. The good news is that women with breast cancer, even those with advaned disease, can live for years and do very well. If they have not tested the cancer for HER2/neu antigen, this might be something worth doing. If it is positive, there is a medication that may be helpful.
