Hello
Welcome to Healthcare magic.
How much time a cancer patient survives is very different for each individual.
It can be told Only after knowing the stage type and condition of the patient .
Her hands could be grey due to vascular disease caused by smoking also.
If her cancer is only limited to cervix and uterus and not spread to.abdomen, blood or bone there is hope for recovery .Survival is less likely if spread is to bone and blood.
Thanks
