Julie McCrossin: It is marvelous to see this formal collaboration between The Christie and Peter Mac

Julie McCrossin, Broadcaster, MC, and Cancer Advocate, made the following post on LinkedIn:

“As a cancer survivor and advocate, it is marvelous to see this formal collaboration between two first-class cancer centers, The Christie in Manchester UK, and Peter Mac in Melbourne Australia.

I note with interest this part of the partnership: ‘As a first step plans are already underway to establish and recruit a dedicated radiation oncology fellowship across The Christie and Peter Mac. Candidates will spend one year in Manchester and one year in Melbourne as part of this prestigious training offering.’

As a Head and Neck Cancer survivor, treated successfully with radiation therapy, I am keen to see the full benefits of improvements in the targeting of the beam and the reduction in damage to healthy tissue extended to all cancer patients. I am particularly keen to see Proton Therapy come to Australian patients. The Christie is a leader in this field. Proton Therapy, for eligible patients, reduces the damage to healthy tissue.

This video interview with Australian Radiation Oncologist Dr. Eunji Huang, who worked at The Christie, explains the benefits of Proton Therapy.

This interview with John Archer, Head of Radiotherapy and Proton Services at The Christie and Charlotte Cooper, Health Play Therapist, explains Proton Therapy and their approach to patient care, especially for children.”
