Great Proton article posted yesterday in The Huffington Post

Tom Halsted has posted a very good summary on his experiences with being treated with Proton Therapy:

“Proton Radiation Therapy: Maligned, Misunderstood, but Just Possibly the Most Effective Cure for Prostate Cancer”

Worth the read. And love this graphic that accompanies the article explaining the Bragg Peak and how it differs from conventional x-rays:

Very interesting article on proton therapy. I am familiar with other treatments, but not proton therapy.

I will read more to learn about this exciting treatment option.
