The Association of Freestanding Radiation Oncology Centers has been representing the interests of the individual and group practices responsible for delivering cancer care to the majority of patients in the United States. These physicians, physicists, professional support personnel, and administrators are the key to the current and ideal system that allows most cancer patients to be treated with advanced techniques within a reasonable distance from their homes. Now, more than ever, this is being threatened by policy makers who do not recognize the potential results of their actions. Help AFROC continue to monitor and intervene to maximize our standing before irreversible changes occur.
