After five years of a slowly increasing PSA and a number of biopsies, I was notified on September 16, 2010 that cancerous cells were detected. I had read and conducted a lot of research on the Internet — just in case I was ever detected as positive.
I immediately called Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI) and received information of the facility, as well as a guided tour. I was impressed with the facility and what it offered. I was pretty sure that this would be the treatment for me. Then I read Bob Marckini’s book, “You Can Beat Prostate Cancer,” which led me to my final decision.
My first treatment began on February 7, 2011. All of the people that treated me were all very knowledgeable, professional, caring and friendly. Doctors Sinesi and Thornton were very impressive. Even though the facility was new and had just begun to treat patients, the doctors and staff had a lot of experience. I felt this was the A-Team attending to my care. I went to work every day during my treatment with no side effects. I am so happy I met these great people at the HUPTI.
