My name is Howard J. ‘Jim” Tuggey, it’s November 2007 and I’m cancer free!

I completed PROTON treatment on August 27, 1999, over eight years ago this past August 27th, 2007, for Prostate Cancer at Loma Linda University’s Proton Treatment Center, in California.

My admiration for Dr. James M. Slater is limitless. His work to establish a Proton Center at Loma Linda has resulted in a personal freedom from worry that I cannot express adequately. As of this writing I have no evidence of Prostate disease due to the wonderful Proton capability at Loma Linda. I have been so impressed that one objective occurred to me, to insure that I spread the word about “Protons” to as many men as I can in my remaining lifetime. In this regard, I have written every Senator and Congressional Representative twice, the first time in 2000. Now I am beginning the third round.

I cannot express the depth of my personal happiness when men and often their wives have walked up to me and said, “You have saved my life!” Of course, Protons have, not me; however I am happy that my Web site that receives as many as 10,000 hits a month, opening right after my final treatment has helped these men make a decision to go to Loma Linda. In fact, one of my best friend’s mother-in-law has had her sight restored by Proton treatment and the versatile and expert doctors who handle Proton treatment at Loma Linda.

My life has been changed by Dr. Slater’s efforts and through my professional relationship with the amazing Loma Linda staff who have guided me through the treatment and follow-up, the latest on November 14, 2007.

God Bless Dr. James M. Slater
