Proton therapy is a very precise treatment that prevents short term and long side effects by reducing radiation exposure to healthy tissue. For children this means the opportunity to deliver higher doses of radiation to the tumor while preventing harmful side effects.
“I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer when I was six years old. When I first walked in I was scared, but after my first few treatments, I really started to warm up to the place. I’m 11 now and I feel great! I would like to say to everyone at the Proton Center at Hampton, Thanks for Saving My Life!”
