Well, Alzheimer's CAN'T be reversed; it is progressive.  Radiation and/or chemo induced dementia can improved after treatments.  

That will be up to her husband if treatment should continue.  He definitely needs to be discussing this with her physician.  

If her cancer is incurable, then all treatments would only be considered palliative and never curative.
