I don't know what to say to a question like this. You marry someone because you love them. Tomorrow is promised to no one. She won't be able to have children if she's had chemo, so can you live with that? She may continue on the same course as she has all these years. Can you live with that? She may be cured one day and then again she could die. You could get hit tomorrow by a bus...or you could get cancer...what are your chances of surviving? I doubt very much God lives in yahoo and has an answer for you, so you decide if you love this girl and want to be there for her or move on and let her be.
