The Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC) joined James McHenry Elementary School Aug. 23 in celebrating the school’s newly renovated kindergarten classroom.

MPTC contributed funds for the renovation at the west Baltimore school well as  school supplies for the students. During the event, MPTC unveiled a plaque that will hang outside of the classroom honoring the center’s first 1,000 patients.

Allison Shafer, marketing manager for MPTC, said the center had heard about the “100 percent for 100 percent” slogan for the school and decided a contribution to a school in its neighborhood would be the perfect way to honor its patients.

MPTC has treated more than 1,000 patients over the past 2½ years, including patients from more than a dozen countries using proton therapy. Proton therapy is an advanced radiation technique that targets tumors with pinpoint accuracy while limiting radiation exposure to healthy tissues. MPTC is successfully treating difficult cancers including lung, liver, mesothelioma, head and neck, brain, esophagus, breast, prostate, and recurrent tumors throughout the body with proton therapy.
