Here we go

Today is Day Three. Only Forty more to go.
Dan is undergoing radiation treatments for prostate cancer. He chose this method of treatment rather than go under the knife. Current literature provides data that rad treatments are just as effective as surgery -- sometimes more so.

Dan has been through cancer treatment before, so he's no newbie to all of this. We are a bit wiser with respect to holding our own against the "medical system". It's not easy. People need advocates and need to be advocates as well to make sure they get the right treatment at the right time.
