2011 and My 81st Birthday Approaches

Monday, December 27th, 2010

The day I started this web site I decided to do it for free and only feature my own experience with Protons and the experiences of other Proton Treated Cancer survivors, both men and women.

If you have been treated with protons for any cancer I would welcome your comments.

My wife of 57 years and I are going to New York, weather permitting, this weekend and taking my nine year old granddaughter along as well as her parents who have never been in the city for more than a few minutes.

We will be there New Years Eve and my youngest son will remember getting there after flying from Iran on December 31, 1979 after spending some time with us celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary during the time when Iran was changing.

The bottom line is that Protons have allowed me this victory over disease and already I have seen the birth of the young lady going with us and two more new recently born children.

My thanks goes to Dr. Carl Rossi at Loma Linda and his wonderful Case Manager at the time Sharon. These folks and many others made sure that the Proton did the job and it’s hard to remember that it was over on August 27, 1999.

Lastly, thanks to Mr. Jay Rolls, my wife’s nephew, who provides the business and technical genius that allows me to get the word out there.

I hope you have a great 2011.

P.S. I still have NO side effects from the Proton treatment 11 years 4 months since treatment.
