Frequent driver miles.

Some patients receiving daily radiation have surely earned some travel points. This aptly-named first author used SEER data to quantify just how far some women with breast cancer are traveling for their treatments. It includes over 52K women treated between 2004 and 2013 and measures distance from patient address to treatment address using none other than Google maps. It’s no surprise that patients in rural zip codes were farther away from the closest treatment facility, but they were more than 4x farther than their metro counterparts at an average of 22 versus 5 miles. TBL: Until Stanford puts their electron waveguide chip on a LINAC truck, social support measures to aid rural patients with onerous daily travel for treatment remains an important tenet of comprehensive radiation oncology care. | Longacre, J Rural Health 2019

  3. When a company offers money back guarantees then they must be very confident in their product and their promise of its effectiveness so you can be sure it is safe to buy from these such companies rather than those that do not offer money back guarantees. Resurge supplement review
