Hello welcome to Health Care Magic,
Not sure what you wanted to ask, whatever has happened is past cant be reverted back, all you can do is act in current and control future.
Just provide her your moral support and , I ma sure if you had wonderful marriage for 40 year your heart wont allow you to leave her at this point of time.
Please get back with your query , I wish her good health.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Kindly give her all the support, as she would need you in this hard time. No sure hat you want us to help you with but it would be wise to get her into a program to stop drinking alcohol. Let hr get seen by an Oncologist and decide prognosis with surgery and/or medication.
