A 12/26/07 article in the New York Times, Cancer Fight Goes Nuclear, With Heavy Price Tag brought the Proton up front. Not all positive but all in all alerts a great number of people to the Proton capability.

Price seems to be the concern in this article; while *I* am sure that Curing Cancer should be at the forefront above all else!

Nothing will stop this important Proton therapy. ALL my systems work today, December 31, 2007. We now have two additional Proton Therapy Centers developing, an increase from the number just reported in my Blog of early December:

A second proton center in the heavily populated Chicago area

Central DuPage would like to see its first patient by 2010. Jim Spear, the hospital’s executive vice president and chief financial officer, said it’s ready to break ground on its Winfield campus “the very day” of board approval. The hospital plans to spend about $140 million on its facility. “We have everything else in place,” he said. “All our financing is secured (from private investors). All our architectural plans for building the building are secured. We have equipment on order. So we’re technically in good shape to start. All we need is the proper approval by the planning board.” Central DuPage also is partnered with ProCure Treatment Centers Inc., a Bloomington, Ind.-based firm that specializes in developing proton therapy centers.

And, a Second Proton Center in Oklahoma City:

Bloomington, Ind.-based ProCure Treatment Centers is building a four-gantry proton center in far northwest Oklahoma City along the Kilpatrick Turnpike.

ProCure has said the cost of its Oklahoma City treatment center, the first of several, will approach $100 million. ProCure has also raised private investment capital to build its treatment centers.

My personal treatment has resulted in NO Side Effects from a NON-INVASIVE treatment with Protons over 8 years and four months ago.
