I suspect your friend was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. The first she has to do is give up smoking, alcohol and drugs. All these will worsen her condition.  She has to then take her meds regularly and review with cardiologist on a regular basis.  with these measures she will improve significantly.
