The outlook for metastatic breast cancer with spread of disease to multiple organs is not very good. Still if she is in a position to take chemotherapy, I will advise to go forward with it.

Stage IV breast cancer can't be cured but it can be controlled. Treatment I'd palliative chemotherapy. It prolongs life decrease problems related to cancer. Now even in stage IV breast cancer with modern medicine some patient have good quality of life for 2-3 years and may be more. Take care of her nutrition and physical activity during treatment.
