One of the biggest problems with cancer patients is DENIAL. As hard as it is to do, you have to look at it square in the face and decide whether you are going to lie to yourself that you don't have it and can tough it out or be honest and deal with it to the best of your ability. Your friend needs to see her oncologist. That doctor can tell her what her prognosis is for the future. If young children are involved it is only fair to them that plans for their future be made by the mother while she can still make them.
