Prof. Dr. Karin Haustermans

Medical Director Protontherapy, ParTICLe

"When a child or an adult is diagnosed with cancer, he should not want to wait a few weeks before the treatment can start abroad. In our experience, it takes time before all the administration is fulfilled to refer a patient. Most treatments are done in combination with chemotherapy which makes it even more complex because the patient starts with chemotherapy and at a certain stage has to start with radiotherapy."

"It is already a big burden to a family if you have a child diagnosed with cancer… If you also have to travel abroad, one of the parents has to leave the family, and there are language problems…There are many reasons why we need a proton therapy center in Belgium."
