    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    i started chemo for breast 2 weeks ago and now after ct scan dr says hot spot on ovarie looks to be cancer. oncologist and surgon decided to not do surgry on ovarie untill after complete chemo is done. reason is that stopping chemo to do surgrey may make cancer immune to treatment. i am scared. i have lost my job as a school bus driver as the employer dr would not pass me for D.O.T phyisical. now no job no money.employer said they would keep ins up but for how long i dont know.
