No one is the same as any one else. Our genetics all make us susceptible to certain conditions and give us certain gifts. Despite the differences between people, most oncologists and hospitals treat all cancer patients the same way. They use the same treatments for everybody, rather than tailoring the treatment to each individual The Cancer Centers of America try to do things a different way. Each facility in the organization’s network believes in treating each patient as an individual.
Because no two people are the same, the people who founded the organization hold the belief that no two cancers of the same. A proper treatment plan must be tailored to each individual. Staff use a holistic approach, although they shy away from using only alternative medicine. Sometimes they will use alternative sources to complement the needs of the patient, or they may decide to provide nutritional support for the patient.
Cancer often robs its sufferers of their appetites. Chemical and radiation therapies often remove the patient’s hair. Any of number of things will attempt to rob a cancer patient’s dignity before the treatment process ends. Staff members do their best to make sure that the patients have everything they need to fight back during their stay.
No cancer treatment facility boasts a one hundred percent success rate because of the nature of the disease, but the Cancer Centers of America have one of the highest success rates of any such facility in the country. Patients often come out of the center in remission. It takes at least five years of a patient being in remission before a doctor will declare cancer cured. It is possible, but unlikely, that the disease will come back after it has been gone for five years.
