NEW CHANCE FOR TOM

The beat of a drum once again symbolises the end of treatment for 10 year old Tom. He has completed proton therapy treatment for medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumour. This type of cancer is particularly suitable for proton therapy because radiation must be given near sensitive areas of the body - the brain and spinal cord.

Medical research clearly demonstrates  for children with solid tumours. Proton therapy is not available in every country. However proton therapy is available right now in Europe. It is safe and effective for your child. In Prague, it is also affordable. E.U. patients have the right to have the treatment reimbursed. 

Unlike conventional x-ray radiation therapy, Proton Therapy stops at a precise point, conforms to the tumour shape and depth, and deposits the bulk of its cancer fighting energy at the site of the tumour. There is virtually no exit dose of radiation with proton therapy, thereby preserving nearby normal tissues and organs. 

Note: Treatment of children is a highly sensitive issue. Thus, we require parents to send recommendation of a paediatric oncologist for any form of radiotherapy prior comming to PTC. 

ADVANTAGES OF PROTON THERAPY IN CHILDREN PATIENTS:

  • Higher chances of complete recovery and healthy development for children
