Although I’m not used to share my problems (I prefer to help others), but I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed and alone and this seems like a good place to vent a bit.
Recently, I’ve signed up my mom for a clinical trial. While it looked promising at first, the bills started piling up and we got to the point, where we couldn’t pay any more. So they cut it off, thanks to that great healthcare we have, ugh. My little paychecks can’t support this, so I’m very eager to find alternatives.
Before, I was exploring alternatives out of curiosity. But now, it’s a must. As I’ve said in one of my previous posts over here, my exploration involved Budwig (not as good as some would think), imunotherapy, some oils, probiotics, Zamanto (much better and cheaper, trying now; fingers crossed), and some other treatments.
Although I feel like my mom’s misery would consume me, I’m not ready to give up hope. For her sake. I have to fight on to save her. So, if you have any thoughts or experience with the above (or other) treatments, please do share, ok?
Of course, I’ll share the results with the above treatments, if they’ll help.
Again I’ll make this quick and will spend more time with you in a bit. Clinical trials usually don’t cost as much as normal oncology care. Since the pharma companies are mostly responsible for drug development they want to get as many people as possible to enter into their trials so they make it a simple as possible. With that said if you don’t live near the trial transportation can make it impossible to be included (there are support groups working hard to make transportation easier). Have you read our series on clinical trials? Here’s a link.
They may take a while to get through but they might be worth it. The title of the 3rd one is, “Clinical Trials in Cancer, with Dr. Ramalingam: Myths, Facts, and Patient Rights”
