      I have a friend who goes to CTCA. She LOVES them. And, if I were she, so would i. When she went there, all other doctors had given up hope. She has responded quite well to their treatments. She may even be NED, instead of dead, because of the protocol they used.

      With that said, I hear that they are more about the $$$ than they are about treating people with cancer. You MUST have good insurance or they won't accept you. Medicare does NOT qualify as good insurance.

      Cancer centers only stopped accepting patients after getting into trouble for sucking a person dry and kicking the person out of a clinic when money, insurance-etc is gone. It's bad when insurance companies step in and really protect sick people

      I've never been to one, but I've heard negative things about them. I'd stick to a renowned cancer hospital, if possible
      (MD Anderson, MSKCC, Dana-Farber, etc.).

      In case you don't know which cancer centers are highly regarded, here's the link to the (National Institutes of Health) National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Centers. You have 7 in New York to choose from, plus surrounding states.

      Cancer Treatment Centers of America saved my life. I would recommend them to anyone. The level of care is unprecedented. I have been going there for 11 years. I’ve had Cancer for 14 years. I am treatable, but not cureable. Currently on SSD and Medicare. Currently on FOLFURI.
