Default Stage IV Lymphoma

Well, as I said in a different cousin was diagnosed with b-cell lymphoma...

There's been both good news and - obviously - from the title of this thread very bad news. She was diagnosed today with Stage IV Lymphoma. I know stage IV is the last stage, but I absolutely know nothing else about what this means? I can say that the cancer originated in her ribs and the next lesion was in her arm.

I'm very hesitant to google it, because I know what will pop up. And I am not discussing death. So, someone please enlighten me as to what this diagnosis means? Her bone marrow was clean. She starts chemotherapy Monday.
