PRINCETON, N.J., June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's graduation season, and high schools, colleges, and other educational institutions throughout the region are honoring students at events that feature ceremonial music and all the other "pomp and circumstance" commensurate with this memorable milestone.

But there's another group equally excited to celebrate next steps and new beginnings. They may not be in their late teens or early twenties, but the enthusiasm for what's ahead is no less evident. They are all cancer patients completing their radiation therapy—Rad Grads as they are affectionately referred to at Princeton Radiation Oncology Center.

Completing a degree is hard work—a lifetime achievement. Fighting cancer is hard work and an achievement too. So, at the end of the final visit of a course of therapy, Princeton Radiation Oncology Center has a ceremony—complete with graduation music to accompany the triumphant walk down the hall to mark the event.

"We all recognize and respect that this can be a very difficult time for patients and their families and so we try to create a warm atmosphere for them at our center," said Dr. Edward Soffen, who has even been known to sing to patients to help relieve their anxiety. "We will do whatever it takes to help support the healing process."
