I am so, so sorry to hear about the loss of your girlfriend. I have an aunt with cancer now and I am biting my tongue because I want to suggest that she go to one of the cancer clinics in Tijuana before she gets involved with chemotheraphy. But, like your girlfriend, my aunt trusts her doctors. I wish everyone could read, "When Healing Becomes a Crime" by Kenny Ausubel. It is shocking (!) to read about how hard the American Medical Assoc. has fought to PREVENT any alternative cancer research in this country. Everyone should read this book BEFORE they or a loved one gets cancer.
