Hey Tony & Ruth too!
sorry to hear about your buddy RB. it again shows that PC can strike any man when he least expects it. as you know, i have followed your journey closely and have been routing for you all the way. i couldn't determine your age from previous postings, but i have to assume that RB is possibly around my age. i am about 40% completed with my proton treatments and welcome another proton buddy here. i think RB made a wise choice based on what you said. our fellow member Dutch had his proton treatment at Loma Linda several years ago and seems to be doing fine. Good luck to RB--we will be on his support team all the way. Tony--I hope things will be looking up for you as your ongoing treatment progresses.
