In brief: Need more info

Depends to the extent she has the cancer.
If it was limited to the kidney and she had a nephrectomy then she has the possiblity of cure indefinitely, that depends on how extensive it involved the kidney. Sometimes these cancers even early stage can recur unexpectedly years later. If more advanced then outlook can be much more concerning. Talk with the urologist and oncologist.

In brief: Kidney cancer

Renal cell carcinoma usually requires treatments such as a nephrectomy (removal of the kidney) and chemotherapy.
There may be a slight increased risk in a family member having cancer of the kidneys afterwards, but it is not very big.
