Depends...: On many factors including the stage of the cancer and other prognostic features about the tumor like it's grade (1-3), if the er/pr markers are + or -, if the her2neu is + or -, if the ki-67 is high or low, and how good her general health is otherwise. Depends also on if she follows through with all recommended treatments or not.

Good: Breast cancer has high cure rates when it is detected early and it is treated properly. Her outlook will depend on the stage of her breast cancer. Check this out as most women have stage 1 or 2 breast cancer which has excellent long term results.
