    Anyone who would like to ask me questions about my diagnosis or treatment please do not hesitate to contact me. I am always willing to answer any questions I can. The weird thing about my diagnosis is that I am a race car driver and when I spun out racing in Oct. of 2003 the belts caught my chest and the jolt of the belts made fluid gather around the tumor and that is why it hurt. Otherwise my docs said I might have been stage 4 before they caught it because it was so far in and up in my body. Two mammograms didn't show the tumor, I found it by feeling where the pain came from. I hope that everyone who is on this site tells your friends to do self breast exams. They are so important.

    Side Effects (Chemo brain): I had chemo brain for about 2 years. I wondered if I would ever get my brain back again. The doctors said that they had never seen anyone have so much trouble with chemo.
