      I am a 62 yr old female with stage 4 clear cell kidney cancer with mets to my R lung, Diagnosed in 3/2012. I am on Votrient 800mg and have been since 6/2012, after a nephrectomy and lung biopsy and referral to Sloan Kettering in NYC. I am doing well over all and my last scan showed my lung almost cleared of the areas that were involved.
