The immune systems of fish are compromised when they are stressed. when the immune system is weakened, like in this case, parasites like these can take off.
As far as the chances of success, that's impossible to answer. I have seen fish completely recover from an Ich outbreak with no treatment whatsoever, and I've seen fish die from it.
If you are asking me what I would do, it would be to provide the most stress free environment I could and see what happens. I know this is not a popular choice, and even if it pulls through, it's no guarantee that Ich will not come back when something else happens, like perhaps a heater or ATO malfunction.
As stated, the only way to be sure is to remove all fish and treat them with hyposalinity or copper in the QT.
