Chemobrain found to be cancer therapy side effect
San Francisco Chronicle

Susie Brain always had a strong ability to juggle multiple tasks. But after she underwent intensive chemotherapy for breast cancer in 2004, she found she could no longer do so and eventually quit her job as executive director of a small, environmental nonprofit organization. “When I finished treatment at the end of that year, I just didn’t know what my head was doing. I tried to keep going with my work, but I found I could not,” said Brain, now 61, of Palo Alto.
