is there any cure for stage iv colon cancer?

Cancer management: Short of a miracle (always possible), there is no 'cure' of stage IV colon cancer by man. However, management of the symptoms and sequelae can increase your quality and enjoyment of life, and increase disease free intervals so that you might have more 'good days.' i cannot stress enough the importance of rest, proper nutrition, positive outlook and attitude, and surround with supportive people!
