  •  Yes the only 2 people I now see and have seen (0+ / 0-)

    for the past 7  years or so, is this Peggy and some doctor's wife.

    I still think Peggy , who says she was diagnosed pancreatic and given months to live, was orginally misdiagnosed.  I am thinking it was later discovered her cancer was early stage and it was found while having surgery or tests for another problem.  

    But for several years, this old man and this middle aged brunette women were on all of the time and now they have disappeared. I am thinking they went into remission, but then the cancer returned.

    My mother was diagnosed wtih terminal cancer and she had a 7 month remission on traditional treatment at a university hospital. She had very rare cancer.  But she looked great for several months. But then the cancer returned and she was dead from complications 3 months later.

    How many of these patients in ads are simply in remission ?  Cancer remission can seem like a cure and I think that is what CTCA does not talk about...the people in their ads, except maybe that Peggy, are probably just in a temporary remission.
