It is oro cutaneous fistula. Poor prognosis.
She must see an oncologist surgeon to determine staging of disease, response to radiation/chemotherapy. If some leaking sinus can be excused, your surgeon can determine by checking, wound may heal after surgical care, closing.
This whole is not normal. There is hardly any chance to recover Tongue neck cancer with whole in the neck is in advanced stage.
