no, I don't think chemotherapy alone will cure this breast cancer now that it has come back possibly twice now after the initial presentation.

I think you need more local therapy such as an internal mammoary lymph node dissection.

and you need your breast cancer case reviewed at a large NCCN comprehensive cancer center like at a large university.
