Hello Rajini
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, your mom was diagnosed with colon cancer and has been undergoing treatment for sometime now. As her cancer has spread to the liver, lungs and brain, she would need intensive treatment to manage the complications which might arise. It would be impossible for us to predict how long she will survive as that depends on many factors. As we haven't seen the reports and haven't followed the case, we can only comment based on the little history you have provided us. Fight with cancer lasts for a long time and the patient needs all the support he/she can get. Hope this helps
