A Look at Steve Snyder’s Life after Proton Therapy

Posted by Deb Hickey on June 30th, 2018 — Posted in General, Patient Testimonies

Former proton patient and member of the Brotherhood of the Balloon, Steve Snyder of Roanoke Rapids, NC was treated with proton therapy at MD Anderson in 2016. Today he’s feeling great and cycles 150-200 miles per week. “I’m as healthy as an ox!” Steve says. “I would like to thank the BOB for guiding me to the data I needed to support my battle with Blue Cross Blue Shield for proton therapy. Also, without reading stories of denials and appeals from former patients and BOB members, I may have given up; those stories gave me hope to fight on … Thank you also for publishing your newsletter. Without it, my health would not be what is it today.” In the photo below, Steve (4th in line wearing a blue jersey) is cycling from the mountains in western North Carolina to the coast (more than 500 miles!). Keep it up, Steve!
