The information about Ewings Sarcoma recovery found on cancerindex.org indicates the following:
Overall, the chance of recovery (prognosis) for Ewing's sarcoma / pPNET has dramatically improved since the development of modern chemotherapy.
The chance of recovery will depend on a variety of influences; if the cancer has spread, the size of the tumour, location, the person's general health and other individual factors. Also important is how the cancer responds to treatment; how much of the main tumour can be removed/destroyed by surgery and/or radiotherapy, and the number of cancer cells killed by chemotherapy.
Also according to the US National Library of Medicine:

The prognosis depends on the location of the tumor, and whether or not the cancer has spread. The best chance for cure is with a combination of treatments that includes chemotherapy plus radiation or surgery, provided at an institution that frequently treats this type of cancer.

Has the treating physician provided any detailed prognosis?
Thanks you for your question.
