Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma: Angela Garvin
I am SO VERY THANKFUL for Rational Therapeutics! I fully believe their expertise has proven to be a lifesaver to me!!
I went against the protocol recommended by my two Atlanta oncologists, in order to go with Dr. Nagourney's functional profile to treat my Stage 4 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma.
The testing by Rational Therapeutics (now Nagourney Cancer Institute) found a particular drug combination that I was especially sensitive to that also had less toxicity to my system.
The Rational Therapeutics EVA-PCD functional profiling test also showed I had some resistance to one of the drugs my two oncologists were proposing I use.
There was much discussion to bring my doctors to the point where they were "comfortable" going with the recommendations of a distant doctor on the other side of the country who has never even met me!
I personally felt it was a God-intervention that led me to even know about Rational Therapeutics at the exact time I needed it!
Shari Burt was a wonderful encouragement and information source as I walked through the process. Dr. Nagourney was even willing to take the extra step to conference call with me when I had additional questions about his findings.
When one is diagnosed with cancer it is a personal battle.
The treatment should be done in a personal manner as well.
It is sad that the cancer industry wants to put everyone in a box and treat all cancer patients in the same way. We'll … there is a better way!! Thank you Rational Therapeutics!!
After two rounds of chemo, my PET scan has come back completely clear!
I have been able to experience miraculous results without enduring the typical side effects of typical cancer treatment. I even have been able to keep my full head of hair!!
The results I would have achieved from the other treatment is unknown … but I do know I would have been more miserable in the process …suffering needlessly with greater toxicity exposure.
I would have never known there was a better way … if it weren't for Rational Therapeutics! Hats off to you and THANK YOU for being a trailblazer in cancer treatment and the personal treatment alternative for so many of us grateful patients!!
