Any advice will be appreciated.
This is a question that only your friend's physician can answer. Have her talk to her doctor and he/she will tell her if she is able to cruise.

The ship's doctors and facilities are not equipped to handle major issues and if a problem occurs a person with a serious medical issue will be transported to the nearest hospital as soon as possible. The ship's infirmary is not a hospital.
