    Have you heard about a new type of radiation therapy called Halcyon?

    It is said to be more precise and spare healthy tissue. Here is an article about it: https://www.mlive.com/news/jackson/2020/01/jackson-hospital-one-of-first-in-us-to-get-new-cancer-radiation-tool.html

      This is great news, and not just because it protects healthy tissue. The fact that it takes less time would be a big plus for me. The position that I had to be in was very uncomfortable and painful. I also like that they have things on the ceiling to help calm and distract the patient. Thanks for sharing this, Greg.
