Since receiving her heartbreaking cancer diagnosis in 2012, Svetlana and her family have been committed to supporting her recovery. Recently the family was given devastating news, that her breast cancer had spread to four other major regions in her body; spine, lungs, liver and lymph nodes. Canadian doctors have informed Svetlana that they could no longer help her.
Refusing to give up, Svetlana and her family searched worldwide for hope. This journey led them abroad to Europe, where award-winning cancer specialist Dr. Karl Aigner practices a unique and effective form of treatment known as Regional Chemotherapy. This therapy applies a targeted approach to delivering anti-cancer agents directly to specific regions in the body containing cancer, and preventing the flow of toxins to other regions.
