Hope4Cancer Survival Rates

Numbers That Tell the Story

The odds of surviving a cancer diagnosis is a vital question that every patient faces. While most of us turn to statistical averages hoping for answers, there is unfortunately no such thing as a guaranteed cure for cancer (yet!). However, we still recognize the importance of providing our patients with transparent access to the cancer survival rates experienced in our care.

Accordingly, we contracted a research team from Cuba to conduct an on-site, retrospective analysis of our patient data. Still ongoing with an expected completion date in 2020, the data presented here is based on a report for the 2-year time frame between 2015 and 2017It’s important to note that Hope4Cancer doesn’t have the monitoring resources or a large enough patient data pool to produce statistics as robust as that of larger institutions like the U.S. National Cancer Institute. Please view the comparisons shown below with this consideration.

We’d like to clarify that our purpose in providing these statistics is only to give general guidance and transparency to our readers. Our intent is not to compare our statistical data with that available in the public domain. We do not conduct clinical trials at our centers and patients are not required to report their medical status, although we encourage them to. Therefore, there is a potential gray area related to patients who may have dropped out of communication during the study.

 

Hope4Cancer Clinic’s Cancer Survival Rates (All Cancers) and Comparison with NCI-SEER Data

Our study tracks the survival of 365 patients representing 41 different cancer types. 92% of the patients were diagnosed with Stage IV cancer at the start of their Hope4Cancer journey. Based on this study, our 2-year survival rate across all cancer types was found to be 78.9%.

As illustrated in Figure 1, The NCI-SEER database has much larger percentages of early-stage cancers representing a much more favorable average prognosis than our Hope4Cancer’s patient data set.  Most of our patients suffer from recurrent and treatment-resistant metastatic disease, under immune-suppressed conditions. Therefore, it is relevant to compare Hope4Cancer’s survival rates to those for Stage IV cancer patients only from the NCI-SEER database, and not the general averages across all stages.

Figure 1. Hope4Cancer admission stage demographics vs. data obtained from the NCI-SEER database.

The recent 5-year statistics from the NCI-SEER database shows that survival rates drop from 69% (all stages, all cancer types), to only 25% for Stage IV patients (all cancer types) (see Figure 2). Please note that NCI-SEER survival statistics do not account for recurrent cancers in their data (unfortunately, 2-year survival data for all cancer types at stage IV were not available for comparison to our 2-year data).

Figure 2. Chart showing the 5-year relative survival rate broken down by stage based on NCI-SEER data, demonstrating how rapidly the survival rates can fall for more advanced forms of cancer.

Comparison of Data by Cancer Site/Type

The following two tables compare our 1- or 2-year survival rates with 1- or 2-year survival data extracted from the NCI-SEER database for specific cancer types. In all cases, our survival data compares well with the NCI-SEER data. Please note that for some cancer type categories (especially those reported in Table 2), the number of patients treated was very small to provide a reasonable statistical representation.

Quality of Life (QOL) Statistics

Many cancer patients are known to quit their treatments because of changes in their quality of life (QOL). In a study that included 464 lymph-node positive breast cancer patients, on a multiple chemotherapy protocol consisting of five drugs, scientists from the CDC and Harvard University showed that discontinuation of treatment was strongly correlated with a decline in quality of life. Studies on tamoxifen have reported early discontinuations ranging from 15 – 50% of patients taking the drug because of the combined side effects.

Our clinical experience has shown that most Hope4Cancer patients demonstrate a visibly improved quality of life after their treatment visit, which we attribute to the use of non-toxic, integrative therapies.

To quantify this observation, we conducted a quality of life assessment study using a standardized survey tool on 223 randomly selected patients with different cancer diagnoses. We found that over 70% of patients demonstrated sustained or improved quality of life in all four categories: physical (76%), emotional (82%), social (72%), and functional (78%) (See Figure 3). The benefit was even more marked when the subset of Stage IV cancer patients was separately evaluated.

Looking Past the Numbers

Survival statistics gives us a measure of the average person going through an average therapeutic experience. That is why making smart choices can help you tilt the statistics in your favor. With the help of non-toxic cancer therapies, our goal is to help you overcome the odds that you may feel are stacked against you.

Among our patients, we constantly see living proof of people who are defying the odds every single day. They not only find their own healing but also become an inspiration – the substance of “hope” – to those who follow in their footsteps.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Hope4Cancer’s Survival Rates Better or Comparable to Those From NCI-SEER and other large patient databases?

Since our data sets were not collected through similar methods they cannot be easily compared. However, our data provides a qualitative outlook of performance that you might be able to expect if you were to choose to become a Hope4Cancer patient. Our integrative treatments are non-toxic and restorative, which have been found to be beneficial to our patient outcomes. However, we do believe that a patient needs to make their own decision on the best approach for their therapies.

What if My Cancer is Not Listed in Tables 1 or 2?

The cancers listed in the table are based on the cancers we treated in our 2015 – 2017 data set. If your cancer is not listed, it does not mean that we do not treat your cancer or have not had success with its treatment.

In addition, our treatment philosophy considers the necessity of altering the state of the tumor microenvironment and stabilize the body’s bioregulatory mechanisms as part of the treatment process, which is a common factor to treat most cancers.

I have early-stage cancer (Stage I/Stage II). Would it be better for me to seek chemotherapy/radiation first?

We believe that everyone’s treatment choice is a personal decision worth respecting. From our experience, the earlier you approach us, the better your chances of success. We encourage you to weigh the consequences of treatment side effects on your long-term wellbeing. If you have any questions, please feel free to request a free consultation with one of our patient counselors.

Do you not recommend chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery at all?

We prefer the use of non-toxic therapies and recommend chemotherapy and radiation only in limited cases.

The Seven Key Principles of Cancer Therapy

Our multi-dimensional, holistic whole-body approach to cancer treatment

Holistic, Non-Toxic Cancer Therapies

In the process of killing cancer cells, traditional treatments often end up destroying healthy cells as well. Our non-toxic cancer therapies target only cancer cells, keeping vital tissues and organs healthy while avoiding the debilitating side effects associated with chemotherapy and radiation.

ImmunoModulation

Your immune system is a natural healing mechanism designed to protect your body against all kinds of harmful agents. Our enhancement program uses biological vaccines to strengthen and stimulate the immune system, restoring its natural ability to recognize and fight cancer cells after being compromised by disease or toxic treatment methods.

Full Spectrum Nutrition

In order to function and fight cancer at its full potential, you must support your body’s nutritional needs. A central part of your Hope4Cancer treatment plan involves a personalized meal plan developed by our in-house nutritionist, assuring balanced caloric intake and introducing an alkaline diet of leafy greens and low-glycemic fruits for optimal cellular health.

Detoxification

On a daily basis, our bodies are exposed to a number of pollutants. From heavy metals found externally in our food, water, and air supply, to the dead cancer cells processed internally, these toxins prevent proper functioning and inhibit the body’s natural ability to repair itself. Our detoxification therapies act to complement your personal treatment plan, removing harmful metals and minerals, and enhancing your overall recovery.

Oxygenation

Oxygen forms the basis of both life and recovery. When the oxygen level of a cell drops below 40%, an acidic environment that promotes the growth of cancer cells is created. From simple deep breathing techniques to topical ointments delivering ozone directly to tumor sites, we incorporate oxygen therapy into each treatment plan to simultaneously support the healing of healthy cells and prevent toxic buildup.

Restore Microbiome

Bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa all make up a complex ecosystem of microbes within our bodies. When this ecosystem is healthy and in balance, microbes play a positive, functioning role in our bodies. Unfortunately, many factors of modern life upset the delicate balance of the microbiome, causing microbes to become aggressive and pathogenic, and leading to higher incidence of disease. A key factor of each Hope4Cancer treatment plan aims to eliminate these infectious agents and restore the balance of healthy microbes in the body.
