Hi, and welcome.  Sorry to hear of your mom's diagnosis.  Do you know what type of lung cancer?  Do you know whether her cancer has been tested for biomarkers?  That might indicate certain drug therapies that might be particularly effective.

Chemo is pretty common for first-line treatment for advanced cancers that have spread outside the lung.  If it should turn out she has metastasis to the brain, radiation is often ordered.  

We have several long-term survivors who have had advanced cancers and are doing well, so there is hope.  Glad you found us--there is a lot of good information and support on this forum.
