How do I Learn More about Proton Therapy?

Although proton therapy has been around since 1954 and more than 70,000 patients have been treated, this unique therapy for treating cancerous tumors is still one of the best-kept secrets.  Today, nine out of the top ten cancer hospitals in the U.S. either have proton therapy or are in the planning stages of building a proton center, yet broad awareness of proton therapy has only recently developed with the wide spread use of social media.  The best place to learn more about proton therapy is online.  In addition to the information on the Provision Center for Proton Therapy web site, below you will find my Top 10 List of some of the best places to start learning more about proton therapy.
