I'm not in a position where I can place a phone call, but I can tell you this: she needs an MRI of the brain if she has not had one recently. You need to rule out central nervous system involvement with this cancer. If present, it could change her treatment plan considerably.

she has had mri and a lot of treatment but are these siezures dangerous and how do I treat her if she has another 1 in my presence

Seizures are not usually life threatening unless a patient goes into status epilepticus or aspirates stomach contents. Status epilepticus occurs when a seizure lasts too long (>5 minutes) or when seizures occur so close together that the person doesn't recover between them. Do you know what caused her seizure?
