I discovered a caterpillar has eaten most of my calla lily plant that I was given. If the stalks are still alive just not the leaves at the top and most of the flower is fine just not the outer petal that was mostly eaten,is it possible to salvage my plant or is it all going to just die?

It is likely that it it will produce more leaves, but it is necessary to solve the problem at hand. I would recommend Neem oil, or boiling sliced hot peppers in water, letting the mix cool, and spraying the mix on the plant and soil. Avoid getting on your hands and eyes. If you do, then remember that the "spicy" chemical is alkaline, and will easily be washed off with something acidic, such as lemon juice, milk, or vinegar.
