I'm glad I read these comments. My boyfriend was diagnosed with stage 4 renal medullary carcinoma August 7, 2014. And he's 17. It spreaded to his liver and lungs. He's gotten his kidney removed and he sad surgery around his heart bc there was fluid. He's home now and goes for chemo twice a week in Atlanta, Ga. And he's doing great. His latest scans were that the cancer was shrinking but trying to spread to his spine. We have a love so special and I don't want to lose my high school sweet heart.

It is great to know that your boyfriend is doing well. Going through chemo can be a difficult process. I understand what you and your boyfriend are experiencing. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 RMC in August 2014 also. To get that type of news is shocking, to say the least, however, remember that God will heal all sickness and disease. This is exactly what we believe and we speak words of faith daily. Always remain positive. His and your positive attitudes are important in his healing. I believe that this experience is an opportunity for a testimony and to share the goodness of God. I'm sure you and his family have done countless hours of research and most of what you read is probably negative. Don't allow what you read to change what you believe - that he is totally healed and cancer free. If your local doctor has not already done so, contact Dr. Tannir at MD Anderson. He is the only oncologist who specializes in RMC. There are some new studies that have shown to be favorable. You can follow me on Twitter @KelliAAnderson. I post articles about cancer, eating healthy and other information that can be helpful in fighting cancer. You can also email me anytime at kellianderson71@gmail.com. Please keep in contact.

BROOKE!  i feel your pain, but bslueve you have a doctor problem.  TKIs are just one form of tgerapy fir kidney cancer.  There are now at least 13 different medical treatments approved by FDA for kidney cancer.  I can also tell you thaf I know people who are walking around after 20-28 years with Stage 4 RCC and are not ready to quit.  If one med foezn't work, insist on trying something else until you hit the right one.  Never quit.  He can survive well with proper treatment. PRAYERS HELP TOO!
