Barry (and Wendy) - Prostate Cancer

In October of 2019, Barry, who is 73 years old, and therefore part of a high-risk age group for prostate cancer, received a Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test during his annual check-up. A few weeks later, following their daily evening walk, they were reminded to check his PSA test results when they saw a prostate cancer story on the local news channel. The story was about Steve Pool, the retired chief weathercaster with Seattle-based TV station, KOMO 4, who’s also a former SCCA Proton Therapy Center patient. Steve shared his experience battling prostate cancer with proton therapy in the hopes that others would also prioritize their health. Thanks to Steve’s story, Wendy and Barry checked Barry’s PSA test results and were concerned to see they were slightly elevated.
