Today’s ringing of the bell marks our last treatment and the end of our proton beam journey here in Jacksonville, Florida! 🙂 39 treatments, 73 days so far (although feels like more!) and we are ready to return home to the UK this weekend.
I can’t thank the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute’s staff enough for helping us through this long journey.
My backside however is not looking forward to the journey home, I will spare you the pictures of that for now!
Special mentions go to: –
Dr. Ronny Rotondo (Top guy!)
Karen Lopez-Bunk (Top Lady!)
Tracy Edwards (Sorry forgot to get a picture with you so website photo will have to do!)
Bradlee Robbert (Too funny…….for the touuuurrrr)
All members of staff treating in the yellow room (guys I will be shooting you soon on Xbox Live/PS4!) Matt, Al, Heather – Cold Hands, Morgan, Zac & all the others I missed the names of!)
Justin Pigg (My first Radiologist, shame he moved rooms during my treatment!) The nicest guy anyone could meet….ever!
Friends we have met along the way (James, Tyne & boys, Bob & Sabrina, Kim, Chris & girls) hopefully friends for life 🙂
Bob Mower (Fellow Chordoma Patient from Coventry, UK) Only person I have ever met with the same condition as me in the same area! we are definatly 1 in a million!
And last but not least my family, Gem & Lauren have been there every step of the way…..
Looking forward to a well earned rest and Xmas at home with all the family….hopefully early ish 2015 colostomy reversal & the end (for now) of this incredible Chordoma journey.
