Well-known in his home state of Oregon as a journalist, TV news anchorman, and politician, Rick Dancer added another title to his name in January of 2010: prostate cancer patient. After his diagnosis, Rick chose to receive prostate radiation treatment using Calypso GPS for the Body technology.
Rick shares his story in this six episode treatment diary.
