Women who don't have BRCA mutations could have other high-risk genes that affect treatment choices

I would love to hear from anyone who has gone to the Hoxsey Clinic and has a success story to tell. We know of so many ppl who have gone and come back cancer free. The statistics are just too good to ignore. My mom has stage 4 lung cancer. We have been to the clinic and since then my mother has been on the tonic and doing the Alkaline diet. She looks better, stronger, color is better and has more energy. We go back in 2 months for another screening to see where she is at. I feel really positive about this. I had heard to many positive, encouraging things about this clinic to ignore.

i'm glad that there are people out there who try to provide different methods to cure cancer. i am hoping that someday we will get out of the dark ages that we are stuck in for cancer treatments. cutting an organ out, radiating and chemo are all very primitive. if you believe in science, you should check out immunotherapy, mushroom therapy (maitake, reishi, shitake which are all considered acceptable methods of cancer treatment in Japan) and of course Gerson which works scientifically by altering pH levels and detoxifying which is the cause of cancer. there is a huge causal link between cancer and diet as well.
i'm a nurse and i see no benefit in chemo, which only wastes cells, both healthy and unhealthy alike. i will never get chemo. i will probably never get radiation. i will probably never have surgery. i have had cancer for over a year now and managed to shrink it down to 1/3 the size the tumor was. i have thyroid cancer. but i believe there's a cure, not just a quick fix that results in more detriment in the end.
God bless, believe.

Perhaps you have not done sufficient research when you say "So lets look elsewhere all of those countries with State provided Health Insurance. You know the backward countries like the UK, Canada, France, Germany, the Scandinavian counties"
Ranking 37th — Measuring the Performance of the U.S. Health Care System
Christopher J.L. Murray, M.D., D.Phil ., and Julio Frenk, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H.
N Engl J Med 2010; 362:98-99January 14, 2010
Evidence that other countries perform better than the United States in ensuring the health of their populations is a sure prod to the reformist impulse. The World Health Report 2000, Health Systems: Improving Performance, ranked the U.S. health care system 37th in the world1 — a result that has been discussed frequently during the current debate on U.S. health care reform.
In North America, Canada rates as the country with the fairest mechanism for health system finance – ranked at 17-19, while the United States is at 54-55. Cuba is the highest among Latin American and Caribbean nations at 23-25.

Well, someone certainly sounds angry and bitter inside. That is simple mindedness at its best. I suppose we should all be depressed and grim and believe in nothing? Conventional or the highway? That is such a sad way to live. I however do know ppl who have gone there, have seen it and choose to be hopeful. This is my mom...I love her, it was her choice and she IS getting better. I see that with my own eyes every day because I am taking care of her..... Cancer does not like to live in an acidic environment. So that being said, the Hoxsey Clinic or Hoax-ey clinc as you so eloquently put it, makes sure you follow a diet plan as well (not just "the snake oil")! Remember a persons outlook has a lot to do with recovery as well. If you can get cancer naturally, then (a healthy balance) is that you can cure it naturally. We are not opposed to Chemo at all, but before poisoning your body and killing your cells....how does it hurt to strengthen your immune system first? I sat in that office while the oncologists grim gave us the news...we cried for days. But as soon as we walked into that Clinic, everything...staff, patients..etc.. were positive and wonderful and treated you as still being alive with a lot of life left and hope. You say where is the proof? Well, if you actually went to the Clinic yourself and read the thousands of entries from past patients over the years in the big journals they have in the waiting room.....then I think you would find your answer. Instead of making blanket statements...maybe you should do some research. Remember you can certainly state your opinion with out being ugly about it. I encourage opinions.... but I don't think using the words DEAD, DEAD, DEAD and trying to survive cancer go together very well for the ones who are just trying to find the will to get through this....
