I considered a chemo trial

I always thought, oh, if ever I were to have a diagnosis of cancer, I wouldn't deal with all of this chemotherapy and radiation and stuff. But its very interesting when you get the diagnosis and how you proceed to think about it. The oncologist mentioned that they were doing a trial. If you agreed to join the trial then you would be assigned nothing but this drug, or this drug in combination with other drugs, and so you actually had four options. And I looked at it and I figured that I would go with CMF, which I think is a combination or something like that. I didn't want to do this other drug that was a part of all of the options in the trial program because it did damage to your heart. I didn't want that.
