Sago Palm Has White Furry Looking Stuff on It

A friend of mine has a sago palm and it appears female. The middle of her has white furry  looking stuff on it. I took it off, pulled all her dead branches off, put fertilizer around it to help with the yellowing but am concerned about the mildewy stuff.
