Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

Cancer is a difficult condition to cure completely in advanced disease. Your friends mother might be having stage 4 disease because there is spread of cancer from uterus to liver. In this condition the expected survival with treatment and support is 2 years from detection. With newer medicines and chemotherapy the survival might be extended for a longer duration.

Cancer treatment is a team work and it is the same in most hospitals. Every cancer behaves differently and the objective is to slow the disease and keep the patient free from pain. Please continue treatment under recommendation from the treating doctor and choose a hospital which is near the home. This is to avoid discomfort to the patient and enable easy follow up visit. Please provide her good nutrition. Please do not worry.
