In 2013, Kari Fisher, a 43-year-old nurse from Colorado, discovered an extremely rare disease — cancer of the esophagus 4th stage, which is diagnosed in only 1% of all cancer patients in the United States.
“At that time I lived in a rural area, and therefore esophageal cancer, no one suspected, ‘said Fox News Fisher. — At some point I coughed up a small amount of blood. I knew it was bad, so I went to the emergency room“.
According to patient, she was admitted to a Denver hospital. On the 8th day she found out about his diagnosis and that the cancer had spread to her liver. Doctors didn’t give her any chance, so she turned to Dr. Toufik, Kachali at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Phoenix, which offered an innovative method of treatment.
Fisher began treatment with traditional chemotherapy and radiation, but the size of her tumor has not changed. Then, Kajaani offered her a brand new procedure — spray-cryotherapy, aimed precisely at a tumor in her throat. After three treatments, Kajaani reported that the tumor Fisher began to respond, and eventually she became small enough to be removed surgically.
After treatment, the patient is now five years in remission. Fisher argues that patients know little about these methods of treatment like cryotherapy.
