Looking Back  

After receiving a thyroid cancer diagnosis in November 2019, Carly’s conventional doctors recommended the standard routine: a mix of surgery, radioactive iodine, and hormone replacement. Though Carly wasn’t completely against the idea of surgery, she wanted more from her healing experience, feeling it particularly important to understand cancer had grown in her body so she could avoid repeating the same mistakes. It was this desire that led her to Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers for her initial treatment stay in 2020, where she discovered the link between her cancer and a previous dental infection. Working closely with a biological dentist and the Hope4Cancer team to detoxify and heal using the 7 Key Principles of Cancer Therapy, Carly soon felt confident and healthy enough to continue growing her family.

Moving Forward     

Now a healthy mother of two and returning to Hope4Cancer Cancun for another follow-up visit, Carly shares everything she’s learned since the start of her journey, and why she believes integrative cancer care is a must for all patients:

“What I learned in those initial three weeks of treatment at Hope4Cancer… It’s become my forever lifestyle. Not only has it helped me recover from surgery in record speed, but it helps me continue to prevent all types of cancer and chronic illness.”
