In 2015 when I was 35 years old, I was given the diagnosis of aggressive Stage 2 breast cancer. After researching my options and discovering what my intuition said, I traveled to Germany for alternative and holistic cancer treatment. You can read more about my personal journey here.
When my sister and I were researching treatment options (aka "tearing up the internet") after the cancer diagnosis I was given, we just wanted to talk with someone who had traveled to Germany for alternative cancer treatment. We wanted to know if this an absolutely crazy idea, or do normal people really choose this option?
And if I was actually going to do this... I also had a bunch of questions that weren't about the doctors or treatments but about logistics... like how to contact the clinic, what the cost was, paying for treatment (and wiring money to the clinic using TransferWise), flying there quickly, the culture, the language, what to expect, what not to expect, why can't this treatment be given in the US, what a typical day is like, and more!
I want to help you find out if alternative cancer treatment at a clinic in Germany is right for you. Contact me for free email or phone support about finding out which clinic is best for you.
I'm doing my best to offer what would have really helped my sister and I make this decision just a little bit easier.
