Dealing with cancer outside mainstream medicine is a lonely and overwhelming task. The internet provides mountains of information, but how do you know which therapies are legitimate, or which are the right ones for you? Having someone like Annie at Best Answer for Cancer to talk with can mean the difference between floundering around for years trying various treatments and targeting effective treatments quickly. Annie helped me decide that IPT was the right treatment for me, and helped me in my choice of IPT doctors. She also was very helpful when it came to the nuts and bolts of alternative cancer treatment, such as how to submit your bills to insurance companies. I found her advice to be incredibly helpful and time and money-saving. Thank you, Annie!

After learning of my stage three breast cancer, I went in search of a treatment were the cure wouldn't kill me. I wanted to thrive not just survive. I found that treatment in IPT. It's not the same course of treatment every other patient would be given. Treatment was tailored to my cancer, my reaction to chemotherapy drugs, and stressed the importance of my diet and supplements. My quality of life during treatment and the results of that treatment "wowed" the oncologist and surgeon on my health care team. Cancer treatment should not make you sicker, it should get you healthier. IPT does that.

Best answer for cancer helped me find a dr. close to home when I was about to travel across the country to do IPT. I am a stage IV breast cancer survivor and IPT helped take my tumor markers from over 900 down to 75. Best answer for cancer foundation cares about their patients and trying to spread the word about IPT and other alternative cancer treatments. I think it would be helpful information for all breast cancer patients to look at.

My 85 year-old husband was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer and told that he had 6 weeks at most to live. He did not want to die gasping for breath. We contacted Best Answer for Cancer Foundation and they told us about IPT, a targeted low-dose chemo that would only affect the cancer. They also gave us tips about how to keep his body and immune system as healthy as possible. My husband lived for almost 9 months. He smiled a lot, went to church, walked the dog during this time - a little less than normal but still a good life. He did not die gasping for breath but rather from a heart attack in his sleep. I'll be forever grateful to Best Answer for Cancer in helping us.
