A cancer-free prostate gland is something for men to never take for granted, said Gary Bridwell, a cancer survivor. A routine blood test for an insurance policy alerted Bridwell that he had prostate cancer in 2011. Still cancer-free after four years, Bridwell wants to make sure other men are able to get the same proton therapy treatment he had without their insurance being denied.
