Cancer Free 6 years now-Lung Cancer

Hi, my name is Rebecca Chesser.  In November 1999, I was told I had lung cancer.  "OH NO!  This happens to other people, not me!!  Get it out!! Get it out!!"  I cried loudly!  I was terrified!  Well, they "got it out" with removing the upper left lobe.  No backup chemo, nothing.  It came back in the right lung!  I tried trusting the doctors in Kentucky, where I lived at the time, but I should have known.  The docotor lied to me, told me the cancer was shrinking when all the time it was growing.  I completed the round of chemo and was informed that I once again needed surgery and I would have to use a wheelchair and oxygen the rest of my life.  "NO!!"  I made myself pretty clear.  "NO!"  I went home and called CTCA.  After talking to Patty Berns, I was on a plane to Tulsa.  I just couldn't believe what she was saying was true about the way things are done there and how you are treated.  What a wonderful surprise when I got there.  I couldn't not believe that a place that was "of medical treaatment" could treat me with such love and caring and total respect, for "ME" and not the cancer.  I was the focus.  I was the most important thing going on.  Not the cancer.  They assured me it would be taken care of.  I walked into CTCA Feb.1, 2002 and left March 13th, 2002, !!"CANCER FREE"!!  I look forward to coming back to CTCA for my checkups and to see all my friends I have made over the years.  I know for a fact and I am walking, talking, living proof that God and CTCA work together for a cure.  Thank God and thank everone at CTCA, Tulsa!  Anyone who is afraid and doubtful, restassured that if it can be cured CTCA can do it.

Please let us know what treatment they did at CTCA.  That is not fair to show that wonderful result and keep the magic hidden.  What treatment did they use.  Chemo drugs, radiation?? I have a friend with lung cancer that would be interested in the CTCA treatment(s)
