  •  The ad where the wife was diagnosed (19+ / 0-)

    with pancreatic cancer and was cured by them blew my mind.

    The religious fanatics didn't buy the republican party because it was virtuous, they bought it because it was for sale

    •  Is that the one with some doctor's wife who (14+ / 0-)

      went there for a cure because even if her physician doctor thought they were better than other public and university hospitals?  Yes, I am sure they would take that lady as her husband has the big bucks.

      Peggy is the lady I see on the ads all of the time who is cancer free after being told she had months to live.

      What I hate is all the people on these ads talk about how they had mean doctors who were cruel and offered them no hope. And the only people who could help them were Cancer Treatment Centers.   Good Grief, having gone through this with both parents...that is such their doctors, nurses, physican's asst, technicians were all very kind and helpful.

      My parents' doctors called me back quickly each time I had a question and spent a lot of time talking to me about their conditions and updates. I found all their medical personnel extremely kind and helpful and hopeful.

      Notice they talk about treatments never heard of in other hospitals..well those are not really treatments per se as they are support systems....nutritional support and spiritual.

      As my friend says who is being treated for cancer, she has access to a nutritionist and if she wants spiritual help,...she does not need to go to some hospital for that...

      I think they offer people a lot of false hope and it is mostly traditional treatment along with mind, body, soul stuff that any hospital or medical practice offers if you ask.
