Info. Needed - Stage IV Renal Cell Carcinoma

I have a dear friend who had Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) five years ago.  Her right kidney was removed.  Now she has been diagnosed with Stage IV RCC again on the left side (her only kidney).  I know the cancer has also metastasis in other areas.  She is being treated with Sutent.  I know the survival rate is not good, but what I am looking for is the answer to: How long do you think she has to live?  Please be open and honest with me.  At this point, the frustration I have is not knowing the the approximate amount of time she may have left with us.  Also, do you know anything about the treatment, Sutent?
