Proton Therapy Offers Hope to Recurrent Breast Cancer Patient

In 2014, more than 200,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the United States, and about 40,000 of them will die, according to the American Cancer Society. While many types of breast cancer are curable, conventional treatment methods can expose the heart, lungs, and other organs to radiation resulting in an increased risk of side effects such as coronary artery disease, lung scarring, and secondary malignancies. Side-effects are especially common in patients with reoccurring cancers as their bodies are subjected to multiple rounds of treatment. Robin Baird has had five bouts of breast cancer. As she was running out of treatment options, proton therapy offered a ray of hope.
