In brief: Yes....
With the proper treatment and supportive care, there is a chance of survival.
However, age as well as other medical problems affecting major organ systems will have an impact on survival. In general, the older the patient and the more major organ systems involved in the person's illness, the higher the morbidity and mortality rate.

There is always a chance that the mind/body heals itself.
