Executive Director Message - July/August 2022
Increasingly, our patients tell us they have been referred by their physician to have proton therapy. This is a good sign. It tells us that our colleagues in medicine see the evidence and the value of protons to treat many types of cancers effectively. Many more patients tell us they heard about proton therapy through a past patient, family member, friend or acquaintance. This is also a good sign. It tells us the experience during treatment and the quality of life following treatment give patients and caregivers the confidence to recommend proton therapy. There are many ways patients and alumni patients can share their experience with others, such as a review on Google or Facebook or a one-on-one conversation with a friend who has a recent diagnosis of cancer. For more ideas, I invite you to attend a virtual meeting of our Ambassador Program on August 16 at noon.
