"Thank you for everything! This is cutting edge science...CTOAM is a great alternative or supplement to standard cancer care in Canada. You owe it to yourself to check it out!"

- Luci H.

“Very well-articulated, interesting and informative. Great information to know regarding the limitations with BC health and when they would potentially do genetic testing. None of the doctors I have spoken with are interested in going down that road. Knowing what is available out there is key. Knowledge is Power!”

- Michael B.

"Since I have found you - CTOAM - I have felt such peace of mind. I was out there researching and researching and trying to understand my cancer and what treatments are best. I have a better understanding of my cancer and, with this education you are providing, I will know when and why and how to move forward."
