Microbeam Radiation
Microbeam radiation therapy doses the area with thin parallel planes of radiation, up to a few hundred microns in width, creating a striped pattern of irradiation across the tumor. In tests with lab animals, this approach leads to lower toxicity and the ability to safely deliver a much higher dose to treat radioresistant tumors such as brain tumors. Source - UNC/Zhou lab

“We grew up together and have always been each other’s go-to person,” said Carlos,who knew from first time he saw Salie in college that he would marry her. “We’ve been together through the happy, the sad and the in-between. We’re still on the same page,but you have to work at it every day.”

“Family has always been first for us,” Salie said. “We only take vacations as family, and our kids tell us they want us to be their best friends. About the only time I’m not happy is if our kids aren’t happy. We’ve always been there for each other, putting the priorities where they need to be, learning the difference between needs and wants.”
