Cancer Malpractice

I was diagnosed with a fairly aggressive prostate cancer in 1999.

Chose watchful waiting which brought me to today.

The stress of nursing my wife through her cancers progression until she passed away on the 19th of Dec 2012. The stress of my business not being attended properly, plus a car accident was more than my immune system could cope with and stop my own cancer from metastasizing. Some months ago I became wracked with very intense pain and wheelchair bound unable to stand up alone.

I found a clinic, New Hope, in Scottsdale, AZ who in cooperation with a Father/son Mexican hospital has had remarkable results in advanced cancer situations. At the end of twelve days of treatment I was able to walk using a walker for 20 minutes at a time. Personal cost to me, so far, around $50,000. Considering that conventional treatments in American hospital are often in the $300,000, it is extremely difficult to understand why our medical system does not offer such reasonably priced resources and then spread the savings to help others in similar situations and truly give them the opportunity to enjoy the “Golden Years” so many worked so hard to get there.
