O'Neil Farrington developed a soft-tissue ulcer after his radiation treatment for cancer four years ago. He now undergoes hyperbaric oxygen therapy five days a week at the NCH Wound Healing Center off Davis Boulevard. The hyperbaric tank is filled with pure oxygen and pressurized to the equivalent of 45 feet below sea level. The body uses the oxygen as fuel for recovery, speeding the healing.
