6-year-old girl has ewing sarcoma. Finished chemo, surgery, radiotherapy, find that cancer cells spread. Dr said survival rate is 10% as it's in bones?

In brief: Correct

Unfortunately the five year survival for patients with recurrent metastatic ewing's sarcoma is low.
5-year survival after recurrence is approximately 10% to 15%. Time to recurrence is the most important prognostic factor. Patients who recurred more than 2 years from initial diagnosis had a 5-year survival of 30% versus 7% for patients who recurred within 2 years.
