It was 11 years ago that Roy Emerson and I were both diagnosed with prostate cancer and had successful surgery to remove it. Both Roy and our senior tennis community were extremely helpful and supportive for me in knowing what to expect; and now, a well-known senior tournament player is looking for similar information….
He Writes …
“I got some relatively bad news this week that I have throat cancer (talking too much!) in my tongue area and in node on side of my neck. Naturally, I am hoping there are some reasonable treatments, but some of the radiation ones don’t sound too good. I am looking hard at “Proton Therapy”.
In the past you have got some good feedback from those who have had the same injuries/illness before and thought if you’re willing might be worth putting it out there to see if anyone knows something that would be helpful.
I hope to do my treatments soon and was planning on being in Naples for Month of March. Thanks.”
Do you have any helpful input?
