Don’s Story

Don was working as a radiation therapist when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer at age 52. Having inside knowledge made the choice of treatment simpler for him.

Don’s own colleagues treated him with external beam radiation therapy and brachytherapy.

“I would definitely recommend it [radiation therapy] to people.”

Going through the experience himself improved Don’s own practice, and allowed him to better understand the needs of men with prostate cancer.
