The Family I Found
"At Oklahoma Proton Center, every person I met couldn't have been happier to see me. When you walk through the door, they know you by name and honestly care about you. That's how I felt when I walked through, 'Amy it's so good to see you. How is your family? What are you going to do this weekend? What's this? What's that?' For that moment, I didn't have cancer."Read More >

"After I met the people there and learned more about the treatment, I knew it was the right place.

After completing my six weeks of proton therapy, there was no doubt I had made the right choice."Read More >

"This world of fast learning, fast decisions, tests, more tests, more decisions, lots of waiting, surgery, and treatment plans, while the rest of the world keeps going, can be a lot. What I loved and didn’t know I would find and didn’t know I even needed was EXACTLY what I found at the Oklahoma Proton Center."Read More >
Why FigHters Choose Proton Therapy
Proton therapy is the most technologically advanced method to deliver radiation treatments to cancerous tumors available today. The unique characteristics of protons allow it to deliver curative radiation doses while reducing doses to healthy tissues and organs resulting in fewer complications and side effects than standard radiation therapy.
