I am undergoing Proton Therapy at Shands Jacksonville University of Florida for Prostate Cancer and see a lot of kids going for Proton to the brain. Its 3D specific and breaks up the Cancer DNA molecules to the point where the cancer cells cannot re produce. The cancer dies off in a matter of months. There are 5 Proton centers in the USA. Very expensive 150 million dollar machines that seem to be only at universities... maybe a good thing. First one in the US at Loma Linda in California. So many success stories.. 5 year cure rate for Prostate cancer in the high 90's percent~! Do your homework Google Proton Therapy. I hope this helps some unlucky kids. I am a Shriner and work hard to keep out 22 Children s hospitals going~! We need all the help we can get. Never a charge for helping a child, burns and limb problems. Shriner's hospitals in my will for sure~!!
