Cancer Survivor / Thrivers

Each of these incredible women has a unique story. But so too are they much the same. Listen as they share their stories of hope and the confidence they have in their doctors and how electron IORT with the IntraOp® Mobetron® removed any doubts about how best to treat the cancer that interrupted their lives. We were moved in hearing about how they would go on living after successful treatment at Avera Regional Cancer Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. These women prove they aren’t simply surviving. They are thriving. And their doctors attest to the tools that helped these stories come to life.

The Mobetron saved my life. I am grateful to my doctor and the medical team at University of California at San Francisco Medical Center for providing access to this groundbreaking treatment. I urge fellow patients to educate themselves on the benefits of IOERT and to seek out facilities that offer this type of treatment.”
