Steve Creighton’s prostate cancer story started out like many others. He felt little to no symptoms, but after a PSA check and biopsy, at the age of 57, Stephen became another a prostate cancer patient. After a surgery to remove his prostate he was told he would need seven weeks of radiation therapy.
“I was a bit scared going into radiation treatment. I didn’t know much about it. So I talked to as many people as I could – my wife’s friends who had gone through cancer, and even strangers,” Steve said.
To make the treatment that little less scary, Steve decided he would wear a different pair of bright socks every day of treatment. Alongside his fun socks, he would chose a different song for the radiation therapists to play at each treatment. For Steve, and the team at Icon Mulgrave, this became a ritual, and kept things in high spirits.
