What Is the First Day of Proton Therapy Like?


View the video below to follow patient Rex Ward’s first treatment experience at Provision Center for Proton Therapy:

What can you expect on your first day of proton therapy treatment?  This is a question many patients ask.  A diagnosis of cancer is scary and the first day of treatment is no exception.  Prostate cancer patient Rex Ward has generously agreed to share his thoughts and feelings about his proton therapy treatment journey.  No stranger to proton therapy – – many of his family members graduated from Loma Linda University, where the nation’s first proton therapy patients were treated in California – – Rex was thrilled to learn that proton therapy was available right here in Knoxville, Tennessee.  We will follow Rex, get his insights about proton therapy, and we may just recruit him as a Proton Guy.
