Actual Cases of Cancer Victors

Dee Simmons writes:
"Twelve years ago I was
diagnosed with breast cancer. First of all I couldn't
believe this could happen to me. I had never been sick, not
even a cold, and had always considered myself to be a very
healthy person. Immediately, I had a decision to make...
did I want to live or did I want to die? My
choice was obvious. Coming home from the hospital, I knew I
must take charge of my life. I had just gone through an eight
hour modified radical mastectomy and with my determination to
survive my journey began."

Lorraine Day, M.D. -
cancer free thanks to
Dr. Day was diagnosed with invasive breast
cancer and had a lumpectomy of a small tumor. But the tumor soon
recurred, became very aggressive and grew rapidly. Dr. Day rejected standard therapies because of their destructive side
effects and chose
instead to rebuild her immune system using natural, simple
inexpensive therapies designed by God and available to everyone, so her
body could heal itself. She is now cancer free.
Dr. Day's story is available on video and in book format. Go to our

||Mrs. Polly Todd, shown
here with her husband Jack, was told that her chances of surviving her
breast cancer were slim. The following is her story from the book Alive and
Well by Philip E. Binzel, Jr., M.D.
This 59-year-old woman was seen by me
for the first time on 1/10/75 with the history that she had her left
breast removed one month previously because of carcinoma. Three
positive nodes had been found. I will let the patient tell you the
rest of her history in her own words:
|"It was recommended by a prominent
physician that I be a part of an experiment in a (then) new
chemotherapy program. For a second opinion I went to another city
where I had a personal contact with the head of a large hospital.
There they told me that my odds of survival were slim, and that I
should be treated with strong doses of chemotherapy and radiation. At
this point, a friend told me about the Laetrile-nutritional program,
which I chose."
The lady was placed on a nutritional program at that time and she has
remained on it ever since. She is now 79 years old, in good health,
and she has had no recurrence of her disease.
In a recent letter the patient said, "None of the above people on
the chemotherapy program lived beyond 1 ½ years. Friends who scoffed
at our choice then have much more respect now because others choosing
the conventional treatment are gone, while I survive!"

chose not to have radiation for his malignant lymphoma. His story is
also from the book Alive and
Well by Philip E. Binzel, Jr., M.D.
This 42-year-old man that I first saw
on 6/27/79 had a history of having malignant lymphoma, which was
originally diagnosed in August, 1978. He had 8 months of chemotherapy,
which he tolerated very well. His doctors felt, however, that there
was a significant amount of disease still present. They wanted to do
several more months of chemotherapy and follow this with total body
radiation. The patient did not want to do this because of his concern
about what it would do to his immune system. He chose, instead, to use
the nutritional approach.
|It has now been almost 15 years since he started his nutritional
therapy. The most satisfying part of such a case history is that this
patient has had no further problem with his disease. He is well and
Ernesto Contreras, founder of Oasis Hospital, with patient Betty Roberts,
celebrating a 20-year victory against cancer.
"Of course I had a big argument with my
doctor, and he was convinced that if I went to Mexico I was going to
die. Well, I was convinced that if I stayed in the United States I was
going to die. I knew I could always get the additional surgery and
chemotherapy in the U.S., so I said, I'll try the OASIS [Hospital] first
and see what happens.
I have certainly never
been sorry for going down there and I cannot say enough about the
doctors and staff. They give such personal care..."
Donald Factor, the son of cosmetics entrepreneur Max
Factor had Carcinoma of the Lung with metastasis to Liver and Spine.
In a letter dated November 1, 1999, he tells how Metabolic Therapy in Doctor Contreras' Oasis of Hope Clinic saved his
life. This is his testimony:
name is Donald Factor. I was living in London in November of 1986 when I
was diagnosed with carcinoma of the lung that had spread to my liver.
Basically the doctors in England didn't hold a lot of hope for me. They
were very apologetic and offered a treatment which they thought might
extend my life for a little while, but not for very long. I didn't feel
like accepting that prognosis and decided to go and see Dr. Contreras.
I'd met Dr. Contreras a few years before in a conference in England and
was very impressed with his approach. He told us they used modern
medicine combined with other natural things and a lot of love and faith.
My wife and I moved from England to Los Angeles and then we drove down
to Tijuana to the Oasis Hospital where I was treated.
When I arrived I was in an extremely
weak condition. It was 10 days after the original diagnosis and the
cancer had spread to my spine. I was in excruciating pain with my
sciatic nerve affected so I could hardly walk. I was losing weight
rapidly too. They took a look at me at the Contreras clinic and were
quite concerned. They too were not very optimistic about my future, but
as Dr. Contreras Sr. said, because both I and my wife were very
committed to doing everything possible to beat the cancer, they were
prepared to work with us.
To make a long story
short, it succeeded... I was very
impressed with the Contreras clinic [Oasis Hospital] when I went inside
and met the people; I had never experienced a hospital where the doctors
would treat me as a human being instead of a bunch of symptoms or a
disease walking through the door. Suddenly, there was a team of people
there who were interested in me and they were involving me in the course
my treatment I would take. I was being asked, I was being informed and
suddenly I was part of the team that was treating me. I wasn't just an
object that was being treated. And that was tremendous and I realized
there was another side to Tijuana that I never imagined possible in my
This all happened in 1986 so it will be 13 years this November. After the initial metabolic
treatment and about a year of home therapy, I was totally clear of any
sign of cancer. I went back regularly for check-ups and after about
three years of being in remission, the doctors said I was cured. I said,
'I thought in the cancer business you were never cured.' And they said,'
Well it is silly to keep writing down 'Remission' year after year. We'll
see you whenever you want to come back.' And that was that..."
