I took my wife there for 3 years. Every 6 weeks for 3 years. Put her on a plane from Indiana. She had glioblastoma. I knew it wasn't going to work but I wanted to take her to the best place. Every time... more Id get her down there, Id feel secure. id look up at night at the building way up high and read "The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.......and Id think, she's so small and this place is so big, they'll do something.
I really knew, but that big bright sign and all the people with the lights still on in the all the windows everywhere...They were working on it....
She died after 4 years and 5 months of fighting it...and that was in January of 2014 and from time to time I still google MD Anderson and just look...
Im glad I made her go down there. Id do it again.. They were great to her and were quick to see her and the bedside manner was EXCELLENT...from the Rotary House to Mays Clinic to the Brain and Spine Center on the 7th floor. Excellent.
Every time I took my wife down there, I was thinking the same thing..maybe this time..this big place and this small nice lady.....
For 2 years my fiance has been receiving treatment at MD Anderson. I have heard more negative than positive. It is a cattle drive and as a patient you are just a # providing a pay check. They have horrible... more bed side manner and do NOT care about people. If you do not have insurance, they will REFUSE treatment. HORRIBLE!
This is absurd and the TRUTH will eventually reach the masses and institutions like this will die. If you are dealing with cancer and illness, check out the China Study and watch Forks over Knives.
Take control of your life, make better nutritional choices, and start exercising.
I've been with Dr. Keating, Alice, Coy, and Jackie (my Team) since day 1 nearly 6 years ago and I hit the lotto. They are diligent, competent, and compassionate. I'm blessed to have them on my team and... more blessed to be at MDA.
