In this issue, we focus on ways in which our Center participates in the fight against cancer. We highlight our community involvement in events such as the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, as well as our participation in clinical studies to further cancer research.
In the spirit of combatting cancer, the July newsletter features the story of JJ and the role proton therapy has played in his battle against a brain tumor. We also introduce you to John Bono, one of our radiation therapy supervisors here at the Center.

Randomized Clinical Trial for Prostate Cancer
Our Center is participating in a randomized clinical trial that will compare Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) to Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) for low or intermediate risk prostate cancer.
John Bono is a radiation therapy supervisor from Boston with years of radiation therapy experience. He moved here for the opportunity to work at SCCA Proton Therapy and loves both Seattle and the Center.
