Lung cancer survivor patients
at Oasis of Hope Hospital

Oasis of Hope was founded by Dr. Contreras’ father, Dr. Ernesto Contreras, Sr. in 1963, and since then the hospital has provided alternative cancer treatment for more than 100,000 patients from 60 nations.

Lung Cancer Survivors

All treatments at Oasis of Hope are administered within the context of a complex and sophisticated Contreras Alternative Cancer Treatment (C-ACT), proven to work in multiple complementary ways to boost the sensitivity of tumor cells to cytotoxic destruction while minimizing damage to normal tissue.

Oasis of Hope’s philosophy is not just to treat the cancer but to also treat the person – the psychological and spiritual needs of the patient are fundamental and as worthy of attention as the physical needs.

Catherine Shortridge

I found out that I had lung cancer that had gone to spying my brain my bone and my hip and it was pretty bad.

Looking all over the world I found out Oasis of Hope where I felt they had the best treatment for me, of course it’s a little scary don’t know anybody but it doesn’t take long because you know patients that are coming here we’re all in the same boat we all feel the same way and we make friend really quickly and I think we make lifelong friend there’s no one that understands you like another patient.

Lung Cancer Survivor

At Oasis of Hope I was a part of the team helping to get me better as opposed to an object with a bunch of mechanics working on it.

More than 100,000 patients have been treated here, clinical trials have shown that patients here have up to a 50 percent greater chance of survival compared to those with the same type of cancer elsewhere, whatever the outcome one thing always survives in the hearts of everyone here, hope!

In 2003 I got lung cancer and had that operated on, and the next year I had a cat scan and a PET scan and the cancer came back by my esophagus and I asked them what are you going to do about it and she said they are going to wait for it to grow and we are going to do chemo radiation, and I said I don’t think so and I walked out.

I call my sister and she had done research and she said you go to Oasis of Hope, so we came down, we we’re here 17 days my husband was here with me, we had a beautiful room and nurses and doctors and everybody were wonderful. And so now it’s been seven years and I was cured so I thanked God every day, and don’t ever give up hope!
