Proton therapy is a form of radiation therapy. It tends to be offered when breast cancer has metastasized to the brain. It is only offered at the University of Florida, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Massachusetts General in Boston, Loma Linda University Medical Center in California, Indiana University, and INTEGRES Cancer Campus in Oklahoma City. Many insurance carriers do not cover it. This web link might be helpful to those who want to know more about it. http://www.ehow.com/about_5459212_breast-brain-metastasis-proton-therapy.html
