In brief: Viral infection

Developing mono or bronchitis or other minor infections will not kill you.
More severe infections like pneumonia can, especially if you are undergoing chemotherapy.

In brief: No

There is no evidence that if you get mono this will affect your cancer, at least that we know of.
