One of my well meaning and loving family members has insisted that I go to this cancer clinic in Mexico that has "cured" many people from cancer. When I try to explain to them that I do not believe in alternative cancer treatments like coffee enemas and lyetrile and vitamins and all the rest, she got very upset and gave me the long speel about how "all" the doctors in the U.S. are "brainwashed" by the drug companies and there are places that cure cancer but of course these cures are being suppressed by the FDA. I keep trying to explain that boosting my immune system isn't a thing I would want to cure cancer because I have a transplanted liver and unfortunately, boosting my immune system might cause be to totally reject my already shaky liver.
I have done research into this Oasis of Hope and it looks like a lot of double talk combined with diet, vitamin therapy and lots of money. Anyone have any info?
I also had a friend of a friend who left for this clinic early this week; this person has liver cancer that has mets to lymph nodes and has decided not to undergo ANY regular cancer treatment and instead go to this clinic. I was very dismayed to hear this; and gave them my opinion that they should be at a major cancer center but they refused to listen.
Also since I've developed cancer and had liver disease hardly a month goes by that someone does not send me the new and improved "diet" system of herbs and drinks and powders to put in my food. I keep telling them I am on anti-rejection medicine and cannot do this but they don't seem to listen and then they get mad at me. One person actually said "well don't blame me if the worst happens". (sigh)
