There are 5 proton treatment facilities in the US: www.proton-therapy.org
MD Anderson in Houston would not give me proton with a Gleason of 9 and Loma Linda said they could not get me in anytime soon. I have an appointment this coming week with U of FL in Jacksonville www.floridaproton.org.
Hope this helps and good luck and stay positive.
