We are grateful you are here

Late season robbing killed most of the cluster, but the queen is still alive. Any hope?

I have one hive. They were hit badly by varroa, I treated aggressively, they were doing ok-ish, then were robbed. I opened to look at the damage and nearly all were dead, except maybe about 300 plus the queen. I gave them a few frames of pollen, honey, but I expect them to die. Is there any anything I can do?

Editing to add I'm in US, Kansas. Highs are about 50s now, lows about 25 at night.
