Proton Therapy

James Drennan, a busy cattleman from DeKalb, Texas, lived an active life on his farm and with his family, and he was not ready to take time off when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

“I was feeding about 175 head of young cattle every day and I knew if I had surgery I’d be laid up at least a couple of months.”

Proton therapy at the Willis-Knighton Cancer Center gave him more control over his future.

He had 44 treatments and missed 0 days of feeding his cattle.

“I am very pleased…I would definitely recommend proton therapy.”
