Medicare cancer patients, because of the government’s sequester, are being turned away by the thousands from cancer treatment centers throughout the United States. This is largely due to the reductions in cancer drug reimbursements to physicians and medical centers.
“While some might be going to local hospitals for treatment, others may not be as fortunate— depending upon where they live. It is particularly important at this time for cancer patients to learn about other options to save their lives!” explained Denise Messenger, the book’s author.
Treatment options are always complex and now some patients are being denied standardized therapies. Because of this, personalized therapy is now even more important.
“There are other options for treatment worldwide and now is the time to take a more creative approach,” said Messenger.
This brings light to the excellent work of Messenger, in which she methodically shares her research into both traditional and alternative treatment options available for cancer patients.
While modern technology allows for targeted drug therapies and advanced testing, a myriad of information regarding cutting edge tests and therapies from around the world also exists, although finding it can be time-consuming. As technology advances, so do the available treatment options, but practitioners are often unable to keep up with all of them.
Messenger’s book is the culmination of years of scientific research and personal experience. It is rich with valuable information for cancer patients and their loved ones while on their journey for finding a cure.
