Hey MBN and Briscoe... since you're in the same spot here:

I have a friend who just got diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. She just had surgery and will be starting chemo soon. My understanding from google is that the 5-year survival rate for stage 4 colon cancer is only 15% and it is usually incurable. But Briscoe's fight says the tide might be changing.

What do you recommend for her? Obviously, listening to her oncologist is #1, but are there any super promising next-generation immunotherapies that she should be aspiring to?
