Murray Leads Delegation in Securing $2.1 Million for Proton Therapy Center
Date:12/21/2007

therapy and conventional radiation therapy is the ability to deliver radiation more precisely to the tumor without damaging healthy tissues. There are only five full-scale proton beam centers currently operating in the United States; the closest to Seattle is in southern California.

Proton beams are used today to treat many solid-tumor cancers such as those of the eye, skull base, head and neck, and prostate. However, the potential exists to treat many more types of tumors, including those of the lung, breast and abdomen. Researchers are particularly interested in the use of proton-beam therapy for children, who are more sensitive to the side effects of radiation than adults.

"Proton beam radiation is considered one of the major advances in radiation therapy to treat cancerous tumors," said George Laramore, M.D, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Washington.

"Proton beam radiation is a tremendous breakthrough in the care of children with cancer," said Thomas Hansen, M.D., Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center CEO. "I applaud the efforts of Senator Murray and Congressman Reichert and the delegation for helping to deliver this state of the art treatment to the children of the Northwest."

"We are delighted to see the SCCA working to make this emerging technology available as a valuable treatment option for the physicians and cancer patients in our community," said Gregg Davidson, CEO of Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon, a charter member of the SCCA's growing network of affiliated hospitals and physicians throughout the Northwest.
