Covid-19 Update: Travel, Testing and More

Hope4Cancer COVID-19 Update

Updated August 10, 2021

In light of ongoing international developments regarding COVID travel restrictions, we are reaching out today to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information about our treatment centers.

Your journey to Hope4Cancer is still allowed, as it’s considered essential travel. If you’re thinking of postponing treatment due to travel restrictions, know that your healing is a legitimate, time-sensitive, and legally recognized reason to travel.

Hope4Cancer remains open at both our Tijuana and Cancun locations, and our team has successfully been able to serve hundreds of patients throughout the COVID pandemic, allowing them to benefit from our world-class cancer care.  Mexico is still accessible via routes that come through the United States for patients located in countries that have restricted direct air travel to Mexico.

Our team is working one-on-one with each incoming patient to help evaluate the best way to travel to us, and we have new patients arriving daily.

We understand travel may not be your only concern; click here for more information on “How Hope4Cancer is Protecting Patients from COVID-19 at our Centers”.

We’ve also implemented above-and-beyond measures to help our patients have the smoothest and safest journey possible, such as:

  • Providing FREE antigen COVID tests for you and your companion within 3 days before departure, through our Cancun partner hotels and in-house at Hope4Cancer Tijuana
  • Covering the cost of PCR tests for you and your companion, for those whose home countries require one
  • Prepaid hotel quarantine insurance for all new patients and extended follow-up appointments to ensure that your accommodations and food expenses are covered in the event that you or your designated companion receive a positive test and are required to quarantine in Mexico before departure
  • Immune-boosting therapies in your daily treatment regimen to help strengthen your body’s natural defense against all kinds of pathogens.

If travel is the only thing standing in your way, our Admissions Team is ready to help you navigate all of the logistics of getting here, as easily and effortlessly as possible.

  1. Greetings friends! I am due to return for my 3 month followup in early April. Since I will only be there for approximately 4 days, does that mean my companion and I will be tested on the day we arrive so that there is time to get the results prior to departure? Is that enough time to accomplish the required testing and obtain results?

    1. Hello Michelle,

      It depends on which center you will be doing your follow up at, and where you plan on staying during your time there. I would recommend reaching out to Home Program Support at (619) 400-2082 for any details regarding your follow up, as they will have the latest information. There are specifics and details that they will only be able to give and I want to make sure you have all your questions answered.

  2. I spoke with Jennifer this morning about becoming a patient and forgot to ask if I will be required to take the vaccine, I pray that it not the case. It seems like a stupid ? considering you treat in a holistic way, but you never know. Just 1 of the many ?’s that are popping into my head.
    Thank you for your time,
    God Bless you lways,
    Cathy

    1. Hello Cathy,

      Vaccination is not required.

      Feel free to reach back out to Jennifer if you have any additional questions, so they can be answered in a timely manner for you. We are here to help!

  3. Hello, I cannot seem to find a clear answer… I know vaccination is not required to become a patient at Hope4Cancer… but is a covid vaccine required in order to travel from the U.S. to Mexico? I hope not. My mother with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer would be traveling from WA state. Thank you SO much for your help!

    1. Hello Tiffany.

      No vaccination is required for any travel to and from the Center. The only requirement is that when she leaves Mexico to enter back into the US, she would need to have a covid test, which we would make those arrangements for her.

    1. Costs can vary based on what a physician would recommend for the patient. While I myself am not part of our medical personnel to make treatment plans, I do have the ability to put you in touch with a member of our staff who can. All consults are completely free of cost and are aimed to help you make an informed decision. Simply visit https://hope4cancer.typeform.com/to/LirHzISI and fill out a few short questions. Once completed, you do have the option to book your own appointment time with an Admissions Counselor. If you do not book your own appointment, a member from our team will be calling as soon as possible. You are also welcome to call into our offices during business hours, Monday-Friday 8AM-5PM PST, Saturday 9AM-1PM. US # 1.888.544.5993 / International #: +1.619.669.6511

    1. Our treatment philosophy considers the necessity of altering the state of the tumor micro-environment and stabilize the body’s bio-regulatory mechanisms as part of the treatment process, which is a common factor to treat most cancers.
