Stories

Matthew - Childhood Cancer

Matthew - Childhood Cancer

When Matthew walked in the door of the Proton Therapy Center three months after he finished treatment, the welcome from staff was overwhelming. Months earlier, the eight-year-old had been diagnosed with craniopharyngioma — a rare type of noncancerous brain tumor that usually develops near the pituitary gland and optic nerves.

Dan - Prostate Cancer

Dan - Prostate Cancer

Dan is an accomplished baseball player and an avid Mariners and Diamondbacks fan. At age 70, he’s still playing baseball in a league — the Puget Sound Senior Baseball League. In fact, this past fall, they placed second in the 70+ division, and third in the 65+ division at the national tournament in Florida, where more than 300 teams participated. Dan is glad he was able to go, because he’d almost canceled the trip due to his prostate cancer diagnosis.

Reggie - Prostate Cancer

Reggie - Prostate Cancer

Reggie enjoys staying active, and to maintain his health, he regularly visits his primary care physician for annual checkups. When he started experiencing urination issues in 2019, his provider prescribed medication and ordered a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to determine if the problem might be more serious. At first, his PSA levels were slightly high but not too concerning. But in the following months, another test revealed that Reggie’s PSA levels were climbing. His provider recommended that Reggie get a biopsy, which determined that he had prostate cancer.

Mark - Prostate Cancer

Mark - Prostate Cancer

Mark Yeadon, 63, is a long-time pastor at a local Lynnwood church whose life has been active and adventurous. But a year and a half ago, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Mark knew how to approach this. He asked for advice from close friends who'd had various treatments for prostate cancer. He soon learned that while everyone has an opinion and an experience, in the end, only you know what's right for you.

Anka - Lung Cancer

Anka - Lung Cancer

West Seattle native Anka Milenkovic-Bobo has always had seasonal allergies, including allergy-induced asthma, but when her breathing difficulties and cough didn’t improve after a year despite inhalers, her doctor suggested they conduct some additional testing. An X-ray and CT scan revealed a lump in her lung just as COVID made access to care more complicated. After a biopsy confirmed a localized adenocarcinoma, Anka researched various cancer centers in the area, settling on proton therapy.
