On any given day, the lobby at Provision Proton Therapy Center is full of patients awaiting their turn in the treatment room.
Young and old. Homemakers. Students. Business owners. Musicians. Factory workers. Teachers. Pilots. Engineers. Doctors. From all over the country. All over the world.
Cancer, the great equalizer.
But this website is not a celebration of cancer. It’s a celebration of life.
Meet Emma, whose journey brought her from China to a new family in Kentucky. Meet Patty, a make-up artist who frequents local TV sets and is on a first-name basis with Peyton Manning. Meet Mary, whose proton therapy treatment allowed her to easily resume her active life as an antique finisher and volunteer. Meet James, who claims martial arts, the military and music in equal measure. Meet Ryan, who’s bravely fighting a brain tumor with quiet grace and humor. Meet Walt, who faced cancer like any other adventure in life—from flying helicopters to ice hockey to road biking.
Not cases. Not charts. Not charge numbers. What we treat at Provision are people.
These are their proton stories.
