What Margery thought would be nothing was actually a large tumor on her right lung. So she decided to do something about it, approaching Dr. Ramesh Rengan, Medical Director of SCCA Proton Therapy Center in Seattle, Washington—with a warm, positive presence and a bright, infectious smile. Margery, likewise, felt comfortable around Dr. Rengan, appreciating his knowledge and confidence, and the team that he has surrounded himself with at the cancer center. After he took her through the different options for treatment, she knew with complete certainty that she wanted to proceed with proton therapy.

And today, it continues on into the next chapters—of circuit training, Tai Chi and a generally strong life to come.
