About a month ago my wife told me that her co-worker's 26 year old sister in law (with 3 young children) had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and was thinking of going to a clinic in Mexico, gave me the website and told me to investigate.
It was a nice website, said all the right things, used highly technical and pertinent terms but as you mentioned, no hard science. They offered hope but no promises. I told my wife to tell the lady that it was a waste of money but she was desperate and went to the clinic.
Her funeral was Tuesday and not only did she leave her husband and small children at a young age but the clinic visit cost $48,000
The desperation of the situation doesn't change the fact that, if it seems too good to be true, it likely is.
I'm glad you didn't waste your money
