sorry to hear that looks her condition is really critical
possibly it is an aorto esophageal fistula which is leaking if yes then the chances of survival after surgery is poor
hav the told you it is cancerous lesion (unlikely ) then you may have a chance by endoscopic treatment of lesion
can mail me details of lesion should be in better position to explain you and see if there are any other treatment options
hope this answers your query
please do reply in case of any further questions
