    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    The first three diagnoses were considered breast cancer and treatable but this last diagnosis I am told is different from the breast cancer and there is no known treatment currently available. I will continue to receive treatment for the breast cancer and see how it goes with the brain?
