SAN DIEGO, July 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Corinne Bruce felt strangely relieved when diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer. A year previous, a tragic misdiagnosis of a cancerous lump saw her cancer advance rapidly without being treated. Bruce says, "It may seem odd, but I am thankful that the PET scan indicated metastasis to my bone, thus putting me at Stage IV cancer; I do feel thankful because it required me to look at alternative treatments more seriously."
Like thousands of Americans every year, Bruce decided to seek alternative cancer treatments in Mexico. Only 15 percent of Stage IV breast cancer patients survive 5 years into their diagnosis, despite withstanding strong side effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
According to the National Cancer Institute, 232,340 women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer and 39,620 women will die from it in 2013. Besides imaging and biopsies, specific blood tests for tumor markers also help in identifying breast cancer and monitoring its progress. The CA 15-3 tumor marker has a normal range of 0 to 35 for a cancer-free individual. Bruce's marker level was at 194.
On a friend's recommendation, she approached the Hope4Cancer Institute, a clinic in Baja California that offers many modern, leading edge alternative treatments. A conversation with Hope4Cancer's Medical Director, Dr. Antonio Jimenez helped Bruce make her choice. Dr. Jimenez's knowledge and compassionate nature along with Hope4Cancer's range of therapeutic options got her excited to start treatment as soon as possible.
Dr. Jimenez placed her on the ground-breaking treatment, the BX Protocol. Hope4Cancer is the only approved location in North America where in-patients can get treated with BX. Bruce received other treatments to restore balance to her body through detoxification, immune modulation, nutrition, energy medicine and more.
Within three months her CA 15-3 tumor marker dropped from 194 to 29, now within the normal range for cancer-free individuals. Dr. Jimenez says, "This indicates that her body is effectively changing over from its cancer-favoring environment."
Bruce is absolutely ecstatic. She says, "I cannot say enough about the physicians and nurses at Hope4Cancer – the professionalism, the approach to treatments, the way you are treated as a whole person is a remarkable healing experience ... I attribute my success to all of them."
