Sorry you hear about your cousin.

Stage 4 B cancer is the the most complicated stage and also the last stage of cancer.That means that the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
Yes,she is in critical condition.If she cannot be self sufficient then the situation is serious.Only her doctors treating her can comment about how much time she may have left.If you want to see her,and need time to make arrangements to get there then i suggest you go do that.
Or have a talk with her doctors about her condition.
All said,she is in the last stages of cancer and yes,it can be fatal soon.

Hope you get to see her as per your wishes.
