Surviving colon, liver and lung cancer

I have no information on what stage my Aunt is in, but on Monday she was diagnosed with lung, colon and liver cancer. Are these beatable all at the same time???

Thank you, I got a little update from my cousin, she did have surgery to remove the tumour in her colon, and had a large amount of fluid in her lungs that the Drs were going to try to drain. I just wish I knew more.

While there are several versions of Chemo I think all of them are compatible and it is likely that the same chemicals are effective on all forms of cancer.

I assume the colon cancer will be addressed with surgery to remove any that can be "cut out".   The live and lungs can not be removed, but some surgery may still be called for.  

Give her our support and wishes.
