Recurrence for 4th time in 2.5 years

I am starting my 4th time around with chemo in the last 2.5 years. I have two tumors that are 0.5 cm in diameter. The chemo drug I am currently on is gemzar. My question is: Since this is the 4th recurrence since diagnosis am I fighting a losing battle. These last two tumors are on the chestwall and outside surface of the lung on the left side. I feel like i'm in a losing position. My breast cancer is triple negative. All my recurrences have been by the left collarbone area of my chest. I am very depressed and my hair is thinning out. Will I lose all my hair on gemzar or will it just thin out and leave some hair. I do have a wig and many scarves and hats so that is not the problem. I just want to know if I will lose all my hair.
