Prognosis

My best friend following first line treatment has now  metastases in liver peritoneum and ovary.I don't think she will go for any second line treatment as he knows its palliative and said she wants quality over quantity.

She is 53 beautiful , vibrant mother of 2.

She will see her oncologist on Monday but is there any targeted therapies that can put the brakes on with little side effect? 

I also would like an best guess on prognosis as we are doing a bucket list ?

Thank you

Devastated best friend
