Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Some patients, who carry the BRCA gene are predisposed to both breast and ovarian cancers. I can see that you have received the complete treatment for breast cancer and surgery and chemo have been started for ovarian cancer. In your case the ovarian cancer is in the advanced state , as it has spread to the omentum.

Hoping for the best.
