only if it has been at least 5 years since she was declared CF and her med records indicate little or no chance for recurrence.
and even then it will require a waiver, which may be hard to get right now.

AR 40-501
Chapter 2
Physical Standards for Enlistment, Appointment, and Induction
2-31. Tumors and malignant diseases
a. Current benign tumors (M8000), or conditions that interfere with function, prevent the proper wearing of the uniform or protective equipment, or will require frequent specialized attention, or have a high malignant potential, such as Dysplastic Nevus Syndrome, are disqualifying.
b. Current or history of malignant tumors (V10) is disqualifying. Skin cancer (other than malignant melanoma) removed with no residual, is not disqualifying.

most likely, but she would need to talk to her recruiter.
