My name is Tina Willits and I am a patient of Dr. Williams. I was diagnosed this year with Stage 4 Breast Cancer. This diagnosis came as a complete surprise because I am in great health and had no family history of breast cancer. My cancer had spread to several lymph nodes and to my bones which was a terrifying diagnosis especially at the young age of 51 and a mother of five.
I made the decision to seek the best comprehensive care I could find that would include all aspects of my health to include supplements, diet, chemotherapy, radiology, as well as all innovative immunotherapy options. Unfortunately, the cancer treatment center that I believed offer these services did not live up to my expectations. They preached personalized treatments but I was told that all options were off the table except chemotherapy. I began chemo treatments but was continually disappointed with their lack of communication including not returning any of my calls leading into my first round of chemo which lead to a rough first round.
Although I was responding well to the chemo treatments, I was frustrated with my oncologists’ approach to my case. She told us the best I can expect is 24 months of chemo and after that they would try to keep me alive by changing chemo drugs until eventually they all failed. My husband, Mark, and I had only been married for a year and half and looked at each other and cried at the though of such a short future ahead of us. The toughest thing to hear with my stage cancer is that there is very little hope and as a person who believes I can fight this cancer, I wanted a doctor who wanted to fight by my side. At this point we decided to explore more options.
There are so many doctors, therapists, and companies offering what every one of us diagnosed with cancer want to hear… they have a cure. I explored many options and quickly learned how many of them are complete scams. I am fortunate to have a husband that is a doctor/surgeon who was able to help me navigate the many options and eliminate the ones that did not pass his medical opinion.
It was during our search for options that I found Dr. Williams book, The Immunotherapy Revolution on Amazon. It was about the time I was completing my third round of chemo and I read the book literally in one day, highlighting the areas I wanted my husband to read for his medical opinion. We both believed in the treatments Dr. Williams offered. I was particularly touched that Dr. Williams donates all proceeds from his book to help fund those who need help with his treatments.
The day after reading his book, I contacted his office to request an appointment. The fact that a real person answered the phone and talked with me about my case set a great first impression. I was told that Dr. Williams would need my scans to review my case to see if I am a good candidate for his AblationVax. When I asked what the cost was for the evaluation, I was told there was no charge. This was a welcome surprise considering two other doctors I had evaluate my case charge $1000 and $500 just to review my scans.
Even prior to getting my scans, Dr. Williams sent me his list of supplements that he has shown to help cancer patients. It was stunning to me that a doctor who I had not yet paid a single penny would take his time to personally send this to me. It immediately showed me that he is a doctor that truly cares about helping people get better. Additionally, Dr. Williams reviewed my scans as soon as I uploaded them and had his team schedule a zoom call for us to discuss with him my options. Keep in mind, another clinic that I had paid $1000 for a consultation would not allow me to have a call with their doctors in Mexico regarding an immunotherapy treatment. We really appreciated the zoom call and Dr. Williams greatly impressed us including my husband’s medical opinion. We knew this was the treatment option that gave me the greatest chance of living a long life cancer free.
From the time I contacted Dr. Williams office to the point I was in Mexico City for my procedure took only two weeks. I can share with you that this was only possible with the help of Dr. Williams and his full team. They moved everything forward as they had promised. As I had questions they answered every email and call. Prescriptions for scans and medicines were called in and everyone worked with a sense of urgency knowing that we wanted to fit this procedure in between my chemo treatments which put it on a short timeline. The entire process went very smoothly and I was very happy to finally be getting a treatment beyond standard chemo.
I personally had never had a medical procedure done outside of the US which did cause me some anxiety. It was so comforting to have someone waiting for us at the airport to take us to the hotel. Dr. Williams team arranged all of the transportation from the airport to the hotel as well as the hospital. I never once had any concerns about the logistics while we were there.
The team at the hospital were very patient as we spoke very little Spanish and always had someone available who could speak English. The hospital was very thorough and the staff were attentive. I appreciated having someone in the OR with me that spoke English and she was very kind to explain every step until I was put to sleep. That was very comforting. The procedure went very well and Dr. Williams spent time with us after I was awake explaining how the procedure went and our next steps.
Before I left the hospital, I had the pleasure of talking with another patient of Dr. Williams. She and I talked briefly about the excellent care were received by Dr. Williams and his team. We both loved how they made us feel so taken care of and they clearly have everything worked out to do these procedures in another country. We shared a moment of knowing that Dr. Williams is giving us a chance to live a full life without cancer.
The care provided by Dr. Williams did not stop after the procedure. I received calls from Angie afterwards setting up my follow up tests. Her and her team have taken care of arranging the various blood draws and scan I will need for the following six weeks. Most importantly, I know Dr. Williams and his team is only a call or email away to be there if I have questions or concerns. This level of care was not provided to me at one of the largest cancer centers in America.
If you are reading my review most likely you are in a similar position as I found myself. I hope you take the time to read Dr. Williams book. He articulates his deep understanding of the challenges of cancer and explains in terms a lay person can understand how his treatment provides a very unique approach to curing cancer. After reading his book there was no one else I wanted to have do this procedure besides Dr. Williams. I was willing to travel anywhere to have him do it and in the process it was such a pleasure to work with his very competent team. I want to especially thank Carlos, Eduardo, Angie and Juan for helping me along the way. Finally, I want to thank both Dr. Williams and his grandmother for providing him the inspiration to dedicate his life to helping each of us battle for our lives.
Thank you all
