New and need advice on radiation to brain

Hi, this is my first time here. My Mum has had breast and bone cancer for 2 years, which has now spread to her brain. The doctors have taken her off the medication for the cancer in her body as has spread considerably. The brain was diagnosed 5 days ago. They want to do radiation to her brain, she has 2 large tumours in front, 3 in back and many dots all over, tomorrow. Has anyone had any experience in the success or failure or can tell me the risks. She has been told around 6 weeks without the radiation and a possible 6 months if she has it. I would appreciate any feedback thank you
