Can bone cancer be cured with the help of chemotherapy?

My aunt (40 years) was a breast cancer patient and she recovered from it one year back. now she is suffering from bone cancer and the doctor said that it has spread to all the part of the body. and mainly affected to her hips. and the worst thing is that she is also a heart patient. she is now undergoing chemotherapy. what i want to know is that whether it can be cured and how long will it take to get cured. And i also request you to suggest the treatment procedure so that we can discuss with our doctor and do the best.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your aunt has history of breast cancer. Now she has bone cancer.
