Radiation has been a buzzword ever since we heard the word cancer.
Although no doctor has recommended it for Albert yet, we are preparing ourselves for when they do.
Did you know that in the United States, it is illegal for doctors to treat cancer with any other method than 1) surgery, 2) chemotherapy, and/or 3) radiation?
Regardless of effectiveness, doctors' hands are tied. Even if they know another option, they cannot use it legally.
