“In January 2015, I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. I talked to many doctors and felt as if there was no hope. That’s when I found the book Beating Cancer by Dr. Contreras. After reading the book in one night, followed by much prayer, I felt like Oasis of Hope was the path God had for me. I chose to have no treatments in the US, and I headed straight for Tijuana. I had surgery to remove my tumor, which they used to program my dendritic cell vaccine. Then I went through the scheduled treatments at Oasis of Hope.
The environment was very spiritual and uplifting. The staff was friendly and always willing to answer questions. I talked with other patients, listened to their stories and found encouragement in returning patients stories. We all supported and encouraged each other as we were all in this together. We would have treatments in the morning and often take walks on the beach together in the afternoon.
I left Oasis of Hope cancer free and am still in complete remission. I have made friends that I will remember forever. People often call and ask about my experience and if I would make the same choice again. My answer is always 100% yes. I am so glad that God provided me with Dr. Contreras’ book that led me to México. I can never thank Dr. Contreras and his staff enough for all they have done for me.”

“We looked for alternatives for treatment all over the world, including Mexico, and when I started to look more into the Oasis of Hope, the more I was drawn to it. Ultimately, it was the Oasis of Hope ambassador, Rick Hill — a 38-year survivor of cancer — that made me want to go to the Oasis,” Webster said. “His story was very similar to mine and what he said resonated with me.
“The whole experience at the Oasis of Hope was positive. It was the first time that I felt like there was hope. They were very helpful,” Webster said. “The whole experience was very eye opening.”
