Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can help arrest the spread of cancer cells and kill the existing cancer cells. As for the prognosis, it depends on the type of cancer, the extent of spread and her general health condition. As she is doing well at present, you need to follow up with her doctor regularly to know the clinical status.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
