Having cancer once is more than enough for some to bear, but by the third time Joel heard the words “it’s cancer,” he didn’t know if he could mentally and physically go through it again.
Lung cancer can be one of the most difficult cancers to treat. Thankfully, Joel’s wife had recently been reading about CyberKnife™ treatment in a local newspaper, which provided him with the hope he was desperately seeking. After having undergone two prior surgeries for cancer, the prospect of a non-invasive approach to tumor control offered by the CyberKnife™ was an easy choice.
Now, more than two years later, Joel is working and enjoying his life to the fullest. Having made a remarkable recovery, he shares his story of triumph over lung cancer with Tamara A. LaCouture, MD.
