Maryds, if she has chemo her chances are pretty good. If she doesn't - you already know the stats. I would encourage her to get a second opinion, talk to women who are in the same boat (there are many on this site) and discuss different chemo options. There are options and some regimens are more aggressive than others if she is afraid of side effects. Chemo is not insurance, that's a treatment that she needs at her stage of cancer.
Also, I would mention that chemo today is very different from what it was two decades ago. I went through 6+ months of chemo while working full time. I never felt nauseous.
Best to you and your mom.
