Sanders looks like any healthy 31-year-old, but the surgery and treatment have left him with very little short-term memory, and he is forced to write everything down. It may take him a few extra repetitions to learn something at work, but once he has it, he's got it. He had gotten two degrees in computer technology at Ivy Tech before his surgery and had been preparing to leave the state when he was diagnosed. After his treatment he changed his area of study and started an engineering degree at IPFW. He quickly found with his short-term memory problems that it was impossible, so he switched to computer graphics. Even before his cancer Sanders said he knew life was not something to take for granted. He decided he wasn't going to change anything after his diagnosis.

Here’s how it works: each racer wears a chip that can be read by the "reader,” so every time the racer crosses the start and finish line, the system picks up their times and stores them automatically.
