Yes and no. Logically she likely shouldn't be working. Physiologically people believe that if they can still work it can't be that bad.

My group leader died last month at 42. He worked Christmas shutdown installing equipment, went on a week vacation with his wife, came home and two weeks later started feeling off. A month later he was dead from a series of organ failures. Doctors didn't determine a reason. The whole time he kept working - he was even working from his hospital bed days before he died.
