Radiation therapy

Apologies for the delay in posting!

Ethan is currently receiving radiation therapy treatment in Melbourne, at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute. Ethan was transferred to Peter Mac from Perth to enable him to receive IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy), which is not available in Perth. IMRT offers Ethan a more targeted radiation treatment, with reduced long term side effects (a very simple explanation!).

We would sincerely like to thank the wonderful doctors and staff at Princess Margaret Hospital, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne and Peter Mac. It takes an incredible team effort to make things like this possible. And in particular, a huge thank you to Ethan’s Radiation Oncologists Dr Mandy Taylor (SCGH) and Dr Greg Wheeler (Peter Mac). We can’t thank you all enough.
