In brief: Breast ca prognosis
Prognosis of breast cancer will depend on the stage, the type/biology of cancers/ other prognostic markers.
All of us will die sooner or later. However, not everybody with breast cancer will die from the breast cancer. Without any information it is hard to say about one's prognosis. Please discuss with her oncologist in detail. Nobody knows about one's fate- only god knows.

In brief: Depends on stage
Death from breast cancer, like for most cancers, depends on stage and type of cancer, treatment given and the genetic make up of the individual.
Early breast cancer is curable.

In brief: Yes
Everyone dies, but fortunately most people who are diagnosed with breast cancer don't die as a result of their breast cancer.
