In this issue we focus on exciting new advancements in the fight against cancer that are now available at SCCA Proton Therapy Center. We have introduced treatment for ocular melanoma and we are participating in the first clinical trial comparing proton chemoradiotherapy to photon chemoradiotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer treatment.
Additionally, in celebration of a recent graduate and pituitary adenoma survivor we want to share with you the story of Scott Sikes and his journey with proton therapy. For our staff highlight this month we feature Nikki Neger, a radiation therapist at the Center and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor.
