I'm glad they are taking good care of you. I hear that they are a top notch facility. You've been in my thoughts and prayers.
Wonderful! I was thinking about you on Tuesday hoping you would post when you arrived and had a chance to check things out. I only talked with them briefly, but was impressed with the level and variety of care they offer. I am so happy you feel good about being there. Please do continue to let us know how things are going. Knock on wood I don't recur, but if I do, CTCA would be a definite choice for me.
Welcome to Illinois! I'm in Rockford, about 90 miles from Chicago. Yes, we got that snow all in one day and since it's been sunny and gorgeous. Rockford got 12"!
I saw an ad for the Cancer Treatment Center and thought of you today. I'm so glad you are under such positive and welcoming care.
You're a real trooper and traveler. I'm sure they'll take good care of you! You know I remember a study that was out awhile ago saying that people who are willing to travel for better healthcare fare better! I travel into NYC for my care with my neurosurgeon. It's a ways but not as far as you travelled. Just this spring I was going to go to Anderson but didn't cause I still have a lot of options and am happy with my health team locally.
Please do keep us up to date on your care at Cancer Treatment Center of America.
Wishing you all the best--A recurrence is so so very hard on all of us.
I remember who you picked that name for and now I know where she got it! It has been such a long road yet, it feels like you are at the start of a new, brighter trail. Keep in touch when you can Susan, the Battalion is with you! Mary V
Sounds like they got you covered hun. Good Luck as always. Be sure and keep us close to what you are learning.
I'm so glad you are doing this. How does it work? Do you stay there or stay in a hotel and then go everyday for tests or whatever? How did you get accepted? Does insurance pay?
That's wonderful, I am so happy you are there and they are taking such good care of you!
Love and prayers from
The Center sounds awesome and an holistic approach is such a good way to go.
I wish you all the best in your treatment and it sounds like you are in the right place.
Susan, I recall some of your early posts on this forum. I am sorry your original treatment did not hold off further growth for a longer time, but I see that you have now found true partners to aid you in your quest for better health. I have no professional experience with these particular cancer centers, but I do know others who rate them most highly. It is the comprehensive approach to the care that seems to be of such great benefit to the patient. Stay strong. I'll be praying for you.
