      Hi Kevin,

      I was just like you, dx in 2001 and then clear for eight years, only to be dx with recurrent stage IV disease last year.   Surgery and IL-2 got me to NED and now I'm busy living my LIFE.  There's hope.  Go ahead and cry and say "I"m scared" as many times as you need to – then keep moving forward with purpose.  The Chemo + IPI trial sounds like  a good thing to try.

      Best wishes,

      KatyWI
