“I’m On The Top of The World!”
Eric, a 38-year old, thought he had his future firmly within his grasp. He had the perfect life, took care of himself, worked out every day, and had a great home life. “In 2011,” shares Eric, “my life came to a screeching halt. I felt these lumps in my chest and I didn’t know what they were. At first they thought that they were calcium deposits, but after they removed them, they found out that it was cancer.”
Treating Leiomyosarcoma: The Conventional Experience
Eric was told that he had leiomyosarcoma, a type of sarcoma cancer which creates tumors in smooth muscle connective tissue. Sarcomas are relatively rare forms of cancer, and leiomyosarcoma is rare even among them, making up only 5-10 percent of all sarcomas. This type of cancer is unpredictable because it can lie quiet and dormant, and then turnaround and grow aggressively. Most of the patients die when the cancer spreads to different parts of the body. This is the fate that Eric was facing.
“After they removed the second and third mass they realized that it had spread throughout my body,” says Eric. “That’s when the aggressive rounds of chemotherapy started.”
As with many who undergo chemotherapy, Eric lost his hair and felt tired a great deal of the time. “I was still able to work, you know, but I just felt horrible. And the worst thing was, after all of that, the cancer just kept coming back.”
At this stage, Eric’s doctors recommended the highest possible dose of chemotherapy. On completion of that final round, the doctors told him that they had exhausted all possibilities, and that he was going to die.

Staring Death in the Eye
Eric still couldn’t believe that this was happening to him. He had his whole life ahead of him! He had led a healthy lifestyle and had done all things in moderation. Still, he was told that he was going to die.
“They gave up on me,” says Eric quietly as he recalls the day that he was given the news. “They told me to go home and to get my affairs in order. I just couldn’t believe that it was going to end this way.”
Leiomyosarcoma affects patients of all ages. Even though it can grow slowly, it is hard to detect, and could have metastasized and spread throughout the body long before it is detected. Simply removing the tumor does not stop the spread of the cancer.
A Chance Meeting … or Was it Destiny?
Sometimes you meet someone and the course of your life changes, anyone experienced that? Some people call it “chance”, others believe it is a little more than just that. Whether it was chance or otherwise, in Eric’s case, this meeting could very well have life-or-death consequences.
Eric continues, “So I went for this CAT scan and there sitting across from me was another patient waiting to be scanned. We struck up a conversation and she told me about this cancer clinic in Mexico where a friend of hers went and was totally cured. At that point I would have taken any opportunity to beat this thing. Lucky for me the Hope4Cancer Clinic was just as advertised.”
Being Treated With Sono-Photo Dynamic Therapy
While at the clinic Eric would undergo a series of treatments including Sono-Photo Dynamic Therapy that uses sound and light to treat cancer. The therapy starts with the patient ingesting a photo and sono-sensitizer non-toxic supplement, which is taken by placing under the tongue.
The sensitizer is absorbed into the body and is retained selectively only by the cancer cells. When the patient is exposed to light and sound at specific frequencies, they activate the sensitizer in the cancer cells. The activated sensitizer reacts with oxygen to create reactive oxygen species (ROS) within the cancer cell and destroys it. Depending on the type of cancer that is being treated, the patient may be given the therapy locally or systemically.
“The Best Decision of My Life!”
“When I arrived here,” says Eric with a broad smile, “I had tumors the size of golf balls. Now, I can visibly see them shrinking ‘cause they are the size of little marbles. Just in three weeks, Dr. Tony and the clinic have done what none of my other doctors could do in a whole year. Coming here was the best decision of my life… literally.”
Eric shares his passion and his story with everyone he can find. As part of the healing experience, patients are asked to share with others in small group settings (who better to understand your state of mind than another cancer patient?). He states that from the first few days of his arrival, his spirits were lifted and he felt as if he had done the right thing by coming to the clinic. Everyone had a very positive influence and it is this positive outlook that he credits along with the treatments, to his tremendous recovery.
“I’m on top of the world,” Eric remarks. “I have started a new business, have a new lease on life, a wonderful family, and even when I leave here I will be telling everyone I know about this place and what they do for people. They were a Godsend, no lie.”
Traditional Medicine is Missing the Mark
Each year thousands of cancer patients face similar decisions about their treatment options. It does not take much for traditional methods to reach their limits, at which time many turn to alternative cancer treatments. Most wish that they had considered the alternative cancer treatments prior to their chemotherapy and radiation choices.
WHERE THE PRICE OF SUCCESS IS FAILURE. The use of adjuvant chemotherapy over long period of times can destroy quality of life without yielding any tangible results.
As Eric found out first hand, the conventional world of medicine does not seem to have any answers. His experience highlights the importance of people taking control of their own healthcare decisions, especially when dealing with the human nemesis called cancer.
