Still Going Strong After 14 Years

Posted by Jim Tuggey on June 13th, 2013 — Posted in Book Reviews, General

In 2006 when Bob Marckini published his book, You Can Beat Prostate Cancer, and You Don’t Need Surgery to Do It, I said:

I found Loma Linda and Proton treatment by “Blind Luck”. Bob removes the blinders and offers sound advice for those who hear the dreaded “cancer” word.

After treatment in 1999, I decided to tell anyone who would listen about both my experience and the experiences of others I met who were treated with “Protons”. I also sought where possible provide responses from others who chose “Protons”.

Bob Marckini deserves the highest accolades for his dedication to providing advice and his continuing research to verify any responses he provides. I suggest you read his book now!

So at 83 I can say that my experience has been amazing and successful. And as 84 approaches, I expect to continue looking at the number of “Proton” facilities that have been built in the US and in other countries and read their reports when possible.

I regret the recent loss of “Ken Venturi” as a friend, and miss his advice both as a professional golfer and Proton advocate.

Thank you for reading. Take a look at the many “Videos” on this site – I always learn a lot from them.

Keep up this great work, Jim. Too many men are settling for something not as good as proton treatment. Floyd

Great post! My Dad has prostate cancer. I’m interested in learning how to help people in my town receiving cancer treatment or who have family members going through it.

What are your big fears or frustrations? What have you tried that hasn’t worked? What do you need help with?
