The statistics with PC are not good. However, a lot depends on the type of the cancer (adenocarcinoma is the most aggressive and therefore has the lowest survival statistics; Islet cell; and other types), as well as whether the cancer has spread. It's hard to give you specific figures because everybody's case can be very different, especially when taken with other factors like their prior health history and physical conditioning before PC, dietary factors, and other things. You should try to get more specific information about your relative's personal situation from their doctors.
