SAN DIEGO, May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "She has no evidence of cancer of any kind!" In the encouraging wake of her doctor's words, Rivi Litvin stepped out of a leading Los Angeles hospital, knowing that her prayers had been answered.
A year earlier, in September 2012, Rivi approached her doctors with persistent symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea and jaundice. Their fear that these may be symptoms of pancreatic cancer were realized when imaging confirmed the presence of the disease in her bile duct and pancreas.
Five-year stage 4 pancreatic cancer life expectancy is dismal (between 1 to 15%). Rivi opted for the Whipple procedure, during which her gallbladder and parts of her pancreas, liver and duodenum were removed. But her cancer roared back within 4 months, now spread to her liver. She was given 6-12 months to live.
A teacher of Jewish faith and a woman of unshakeable determination, Rivi, with her daughter Tova, searched everywhere for options. One clinic in Mexico stood out in the crowd. The moment she met Hope4Cancer® Institute's Medical Director, Dr. Antonio Jimenez, Rivi knew that her search was over.
Hope4Cancer® is known for its principle-based approach to integrative medicine. They offer non-toxic, whole body personalized treatment programs that include cancer busters such as Sono-Photo Dynamic Therapy, Hyperthermia and the Latvian cancer virotherapy, Rigvir®. A"Pac-man"-like non-pathogenic virus, Rigvir® seeks and destroys cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched.
Rivi's personalized program strangled the blood supply feeding her liver lesions. By September 2013, the lesions had become undetectable. Her Los Angeles doctors confirmed: there was no trace of cancer!
April 14, 2014. Rivi invited Dr. Jimenez and some of his colleagues to her home where she hosted a Passover Seder feast. For hours, her fascinated audience heard her share the philosophy of Passover. Her palpable gratitude filled the room as she shared how the plague of cancer had, for a seemingly endless moment, paused on her, only to pass her over.
Today Rivi is not just alive, but thriving. Her Los Angeles doctors told her she did not need any further monitoring. But unwilling to be trapped in complacency, Rivi remains steadfast with her treatments, following the principles she learned at the clinic that helped save her life.
