Through the most roundabout way I know referred a patient who ended up there, she had extreme advance breast cancer with lung and liver involvement, after 3 months she was almost cancer free so I would at least check it out.  Somewhere I have the information she sent me so will try and find it.  So I guess I know 1 person who did very well there and the price was reasonable.  Take care mms

Dear mmsurvivor

Thank you very much for taking the time to offer your help and for all the great information that you have passed on to me. 

I have actually looked into another Mexican clinic - Hope4Cancer Institute but find the cost of almost $29,000 (excluding airfares) unaffordable. 

The San Diego clinic is only half the price at $12,000 and the Tijuana clinic even more affordable which is fantastic.

God bless you.

Loula

Our experience was negative. The program did nothing for my daughter. She died several months after receiving treatment.  Nor did I see recoveries on the part of others to support the bloated statistics that Toni Jimenez gave in a phone interview prior to our deciding to go there. The staff are attentive while you are there, but they ignore you after you leave even if you have signed up for their home programs. I think most nurses, technicians, and office people genuinely think they are helping patients, but I think Jimenez and the other doctors know the true situation--and once you are gone, they don't want to know what has happened to you because it doesn't support their advertisements. Two weeks is too short a time to cure someone of a life-threatening illness, and patients are sent home with demanding regimes that few can follow for any period of time and often with ports for IVs that can result in serious infections requiring hospitalization. Jimenez spends most of his time promoting the program. In our experience, he spends little time with patients at the clinic. When we were there, no one had been able to find reviews of the clinic. The reviews on the web are promotional items by the clinic.

Dear Sally13,

My heart goes out to you over your loss, as well as your discouraging experience with H4CI. We are so sorry...

We are currently investigating the few options that we know about at this point. Apparently there are few choices that exist for treating children under the age of 16 who have been diagnosed with cancer, outside of the FDA-approved protocol.

Sally13, how old was your daughter, if I might ask? What was her diagnosis and condition? What was the time span from her initial diagnosis until her very untimely passing? What did you do prior to going to H4CI? What made you want to even go there in the first place? Did you have reservations going in, i.e. 2nd thoughts, while or after looking the place over, talking with the personnel there, especially Dr. Jimenez?

We were impressed with the place, even though it seems a lot of money for the time spent there at the clinic. And some of the equiptment is simple looking. Pam said that they would provide plans if we wanted, to replicate some of the equiptment, in addition to the "included" equiptment they give us to take home. They tout a 1-year after-care followup/ ongoing treatment utilising said equiptment they include in the total treatment price. IV's were not part of the initial after-care program, although we want to do everything possible, if it is available.

Our little girl has been being treated with IMRT potentiated by localized microwave hyperthermia since January in LA. Our family has been separated, except for a week here, a week there under FMLA, as I stay back home and work. My wife is our daughter's primary/ only full-time caregiver. She is our only child. This has been a tremendous strain on us all, of course. We do have strong faith and hope. And we have had visible, documentable, verifiable success(es). And what appear to be setbacks.

Without rewriting what I've already written here elsewhere in response to a post by a dad who's son has the same diagnosis as our daughter, I'll link it here, from Osteosarcoma high grade by josephhoctor on Fri Jul 20, 2012 6:21 AM

I hope we can dialogue, because at the very least you can be in our prayers, and you in turn can perhaps help save us a lot of money, if what you are claiming is accurate. And maybe steer us in the right direction. Thank you so much.

Also, if anyone reading this... Loula, mmsurvivor, talaamiri, laurendownie, IndiraGuevara, JulieAustin, truthseeker113, julianna, Morning Walker, mbg53, Chrystalluna, rjcrossley, jcr65566, lilise, etc who are looking into/ have looked into Mexican Clinics, and/ or SPDT... mgraf, scrubba, Kirsten_72, Shushi, etc., and/ or other "alternative" treatment protocols and methods, and would also like to chime in, I/ we would greatly appreciate it.
