So sorry to hear about your Dad, I will add him to my list in my prayers.
There would be nothing lost to give CTCA a try. The hospital will pay for your Dad and one caretaker on the initial visit and then just the patient after that. My wife is in the long term visit quarters, which are $20 a night, she is being treated as outpatient.
I think we are having success but it is early to tell. The Oncology doc here in Wichita Falls was going to try one more chemo and then try to find her a clinical trial, which meant all but given up in my mind.
So far at the CTCA they have placed, and since removed, a chest tube to remove the fluids the tumors have created. Our WF doc gave her antibiotics and that was it. So much fluid had built up that it was overflowing into her other lung. They just completed radiation on her shoulder and are starting radiation on her lower back, all of which the WF doc said she would not do. The doc also wants to try 3 different kinds of chemo, prolonging her life to be able to use again the initial chemo which was the most effective.
The CTCA is a very comprehensive, holistic hospital. The food the serve is mostly organic and cancer fighting/reducing foods, very nutritious.
I have a very high opinion of the hospital, but again I have to because my wife's, and the mother of my children, life is at stake.
Call them today 800-268-0786 anytime, give it a try.
They have locations in Zion, Philadelphia, Tulsa, and Seattle. Tulsa is much closer but due to insurance we travel to Zion.
