Hi Marla,

Three years ago, you sent me to Stella Maris for prostate cancer treatment. I'm just sending you an update – I appreciate the follow up call and am happy to let people know about my experience at Stella Maris. The clinic was bright and spotless, and the staff made you feel like family.


I was a bit nervous about having the low dose chemo, but found I had no side effects, since it was such a low dose. I also had hyperthermia, IV therapy, dendritic cell vaccines, chelation and different things for my immune system. My cancer has now been in remission for 3 years and my PSA says between 1 and 2. The best part of course is that that were never any physical side effects.

We stayed at the Lucerna Hotel, which was very nice, and the food was excellent. The clinic served breakfast, fruits and juices, and we had lunch and supper at the hotel. I would recommend Stella Maris and Dr. Alvarez to anyone considering going to Mexico for cancer treatment.
