After receiving a startling breast cancer diagnosis in 2016, Grace had the door (quite literally) slammed in her face for questioning her conventional doctors’ recommendations. Learn how she overcame the feelings of hopelessness that followed, and ultimately found the treatment path that resonated most with her.
Walked Out: Rejected by the System
When Grace first received the news of her breast cancer diagnosis, she recalled feeling as if she was frozen in time while the world rushed on around her. Flustered and scared, her initial reaction was to go along with whatever her doctor ordered, trusting he had her best interest at heart. However, as he continued to push more and more treatments with damaging long-term effects, she began to feel increasingly uneasy. Unaware of the options, she questioned her doctor, looking for support and guidance, but was met with cold hostility instead.
“I asked him, ‘If I were your daughter or your wife, would you still be recommending these same treatments to me?’ And he said, ‘Well, it’s a free country, you can do whatever you want to do.’ Then got up and slammed the door… I went home feeling so hopeless, because here was the doctor who was supposed to help me save my life, and he literally walked out on me.”
Reassurance from God
Feeling rejected by the professionals who were supposed to help her, Grace turned to her faith for guidance regarding her next steps. Through deep introspection and a little divine intervention, she received the intuitive thought to research “Alternative Cancer Treatments” on the internet, ultimately leading her to Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers.
“Something inside me just told me to research alternative cancer treatment. Prior to that, I wouldn’t have known to put those specific words together. But I did… and it gave me hope again. It took that black cloud of hopelessness away from me.”
