Does anyone have any good or bad stories about Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa?
My dad has been diagnosed with cancer and is going to go there next week. A family friend is being very negative about CTCA and I feel that it is our best fighting chance to get rid of it. Please let me know if you have any information at all! Thanks so much!
