As Duran Duran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame we learned guitarist Andy Taylor couldn’t be there because he’s battling stage 4 prostate cancer.
In a letter Andy wrote he said, “Just over four years ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer. Many families have experienced the slow burn of this disease and we are no different.”
Despite getting first-class treatment, Andy recently suffered a setback, and though his condition is not immediately life-threatening, there is no cure.
However, effective treatment like CyberKnife radiation therapy can certainly prolong life.
Many studies including the most recent published in the medical journal, JAMA Oncology proves CyberKnife not only improves the quality of life while undergoing treatment, it improves the outcome for prostate cancer that has spread and may double the survival rate of patients with metastatic cancer.
The multi-center study also found, aggressive, targeted radiation therapy delayed cancer progression in patients with all types of Oligometastatic or metastatic disease.
