"I love what I do," Farless said. "I love being a nurse and I take great pride in my job. I want to be an RN to further my nursing career and continue helping people."
The Harvey Butler Graham scholarship is funded by Dr. William Bradford and Community Cancer Care in Tullahoma. The scholarship memorializes the individual who was instrumental in supporting the technical needs of Community Cancer Care so as to provide quality radiation therapy.
Community Cancer Care (CCC) is a freestanding radiation therapy center with over a decade of commitment in the treatment of cancer patients. In 2013, CCC completed the installation of a Trilogy system from Varian Medical Systems for treating cancer with image-guided radiotherapy and radio surgery.
The Trilogy system is a powerful, precise and versatile treatment machine that can be used to deliver any type of radiotherapy, including intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and RapidArc radiotherapy. Trilogy also incorporates an x-ray imager that can generate 2-D, 3-D and moving images of the tumor and surrounding anatomy.
"For accurate tumor targeting, the patient's position is adjusted based on these real-time images prior to treatment," said Rogers. "This state-of-the-art technology is unique in a small, hometown environment."
