What he thought was an ordinary drive home from a baseball game turned out to be a defining moment in Scott’s life. He got the call: at age 61 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

He spoke with a number of prostate cancer patients about their treatments and the problems they encountered. Around the same time, one of Scott’s friends attended a prostate cancer seminar and brought him back information about the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System.
