Our dog Rufus wearing his Seattle Proton Therapy Center ID badge.

My wife Marie was receiving proton radiation therapy treatment at the Univ. of Washington’s Medical Center in Seattle in April and May 2019. We were there for 6 weeks, so we brought our dog Rufus along for company.  We were staying at an AirBnB that was only a five minute walk from the Proton Therapy Center. Each day while Marie was getting her treatment, I would sit on a bench outside the bench with Rufus.  The staff members at the Proton Therapy Center would frequently come out to see him and pet him because he was so cute. The front desk attendant even made Rufus his own ID badge, which was absolutely adorable, as you can see!
