Invasive Breast Cancer with Liver Metastases

Caroline Hindmarsh, 46 years old, from Northumberland, England. Caroline was diagnosed with Invasive Breast Cancer in March 2008 and has undergone mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In October 2009, she was told by her doctors that her cancer has metastasized to her liver. She didn’t want to get anymore chemotherapy and decided to go to the Issels Treatment Center, which a friend of a friend, who had the same type of cancer, has referred her to because they had a good experience there years ago. Caroline finished the 3 week program at Issels in 2009, and in her own words:

“I left with the vaccines and I started my regime at home. For a few weeks I wasn’t well and lost weight, and the tumors grew and grew, but I kept on with the vaccines and the diet and the juice and the detoxification. And then I remembered the date, it was the 3rd of January and my husband gave me the vaccines on that weekend and at the end of that week my abdomen went completely flat and I was just astounded. And I couldn’t believe it. So I think I rang Issels and spoke to my doctor, and they’re all really, really pleased for me. But I knew I had to keep on with the regime, and I kept on, now it became a way of life and I’m happy to keep doing everything because I just feel so much better. And I decided to come back to the Issels Treatment Center this year (2010), which is exactly a year after my diagnosis to my liver because I wanted to boost my immune system again.

And I’ll tell you a little bit about the hospital. It is very, very welcoming, the doctors are very caring, very hands on I would call — y’know, more sort of hands on than in the UK. Everybody — the cooking staff, down to the people that clean your room — everybody is very, very friendly. and it’s just like one big family. And I was really looking forward to coming back. And so I think it’s the best thing that I’ve done and I’m going to go home and keep on with my regime. So, I’m very glad to be back.”
