In brief: Can't hurt

Hi. I'm so sorry.
Since no other effective therapy is being offered, I don't think the use of artemisinin would do any harm. The question of whether it would help is unanswerable, although there have been some studies and speculation proposing benefits in treating cancer. Don't give up hope. Stay out of pain. Good luck.

In brief: No, not likely

Artemisnin is not an anticancer drug.
As far as I know it only works against the malaria infection
