A celebratory air filled the ballroom at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Almost 800 well-wishers gathered to welcome Towson University's new president, Mark L. Perkins, at the Towson University Inaugural Dinner. The room sparkled with a TU theme. Towering centerpieces of gold Berber daisies, yellow roses and spider mums -- accented with black satin ribbons -- highlighted dining tables draped in dramatic black. Guests could even find the TU motif on the guest-of-honor himself. There, on President Perkins' cummerbund, was an embroidered university logo.

As a radiation oncologist here in Bel Air, I wanted to share an issue that could affect the cancer treatment of a great many of our friends and neighbors. Recently, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed a change to the way free standing radiation oncology practices are reimbursed for their services. The end result is a $300 million cut to cancer care, which will have unfortunate consequences for patients who require radiation treatment. Most patients with cancer require radiation treatments in the course of their care.
