Hi Sandi - Depends a lot on a number of different aspects of her cancer, things only her oncologist will know. In general, women with stage IV breast cancer are living longer and longer; much longer than they used to even 5 years ago. It's considered incurable, but women ARE living with it... Good luck - PJH
