 Adenocarcinoma of the lung - long term survival

Four years ago, my 72 yr old mom was diagnosed with
adenocarcinoma of the lung and a lobe was removed.  There was no
evidence of metastases.  Two years ago, a 5 cm diameter
metastases to the brain was removed, followed by whole brain
radiation.  Her {*filter*} tests, brain and chest scans and x-rays
have all been normal since then.  The doctors indicate that this
is hightly unusual and that people with her kind of cancer
generally don't live this long.  How unusual is this?
