This is how this month's letter from Robert Marckini begins to those who are on the "BOB" (LLU Graduates):
This year LLUMC is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the opening of the proton treatment center. Celebrations begin with the Ken Venturi Proton Charity Golf tournament next month and will culminate with an event on October 24th in Loma Linda. I plan to be at both events, and I'm sure lots of our members will be there too.
I'm often asked, "Is proton treatment new? Is it good for the long term? How are men doing five or ten years after treatment?" Well, this month's Featured Member, Ed Solomon was treated more than 13 years ago. His PSA is holding at 0.1, and his quality of life is excellent. He is now a strong advocate for proton therapy."
The letter then gives a link to a PDF file with related topics. Very good stuff.
