In keeping with tradition, Marten Transport has announced this year’s holiday donation recipient, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Proton Therapy Center in Memphis, TN. Proton Therapy provides targeted, high-dose radiation therapy while minimizing damage to healthy growing tissue. This technology is used to treat aggressive cancers, such as brain tumors, certain sarcomas, solid tumors and Hodgkin Lymphoma. St. Jude was the first place in the world to have a proton therapy center dedicated solely to children.
At St. Jude, families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. The donation made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital will go towards the supplies needed to help continue making this lifesaving treatment possible.
