    Every time I see that I wonder if these people talking about their cures are even still alive.

    •  I started reading some reviews, did some searches (0+ / 0-)

      about CTCA and there are some horrifying stories. One woman said her mother with stage 4 cancer went through hell there, that the treatments and false hope given her made her last few months miserable and more painful.  

      Many others say that all that place does is offer hope and continue treatment until the insurance is maxed out. And if you own a home, they put a lien on the house. Then they tell you either to pay in cash or go home and die.

      There are some real horror stories. Those who like the place admit they have excellent  insurance, had early stage cancer,  they have a nice healthy bank account, or they took out loans.

      One woman loves the place because there is a hair and nail salon, the food is excellent, the waiting room has comfy sofas and misting fans and other perks.  

      If I want a spa, I will go to a spa. If I want medical care, just give me a hospital without the perks.
