Hi,

"She has one chance in - let us say, ten," he said, as he shook down the mercury in his clinical thermometer. " And that chance is for her to want to live. This way people have of lining-up on the side of the undertaker makes the entire pharmacopoeia look silly.

What does 'for her to want to live' mean? She must want to live to deserve this chance? Or something else?

Yes, it means she must not lose the will to live. In other words, she must not give up.

Best wishes, Clive
