"Melanoma: New Treatments and How to Get Them"

Saturday October 23 at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT

Erin, wife of Korey (stage IV survivor)

"Yeah, I would hands-down recommend CTOAM. I just wish we had known about Alex and CTOAM at the time of diagnosis."

Yeah, I would hands-down recommend CTOAM. You know, you can't turn back time. I just wish we had known about Alex and CTOAM at the time of diagnosis for us. I think it would have saved both of us a lot of stress and all of that. The last almost five years have been so tough.

Had we been involved with you at the very beginning, it would have made everything so much easier.

“I've been really impressed with CTOAM. Alex has been pretty amazing. And I think there's a bit of an investment in Korey only because of the uniqueness of his case and you know, him having 209 tumor mutations is apparently unheard of.

So I think, for us, the investment into Korey has been phenomenal because he's so rare. I feel that there's a lot of trust on my end – like, with your team working with Korey. Honestly, I have nothing bad or negative to say about our experience with you.

I'm just really grateful. Because I don't think Korey would still be here if we weren’t involved with CTOAM.

I just wish more people were aware of the option to access CTOAM because I think there's some pretty amazing work to be done. And I think your team is leading that way with a lot of the cancer research stuff. And hopefully one day, you know, more people are able to access it...and not live with the regrets of “what if...

Because I know, for me, I feel like we've really kind of accessed a lot of that stuff. And, as of right now, I don't have any regrets.

If something happened to Korey sooner rather than later, I don't have any regrets because I feel like we kind of explored a lot of options and more so since we got involved with CTOAM, to be honest.

"For a lot of people, I think the route with Alex is sort of a must. I trusted him wholly right away."

Korey, stage IV neuroendocrine survivor

For a lot of people, I think the route with Alex is sort of a must. I always tell people to call Alex - I mean, it’s just a phone call. I trusted him wholly right away.

He shows you the science behind everything and then it’s up to you to decide what you want to do. He goes along with your choices, never forces anything on you.

I wished I’d known about CTOAM a lot sooner and talked to you three years ago. But thankfully it all worked out. Without Alex, I wouldn't have gotten the immunotherapy and then I'd still be on chemo. Or worse.

I also think mindset's a massive thing. If you have helpful people in your corner, that's a big bonus. That alone is a huge help.

"We have only good things to say about CTOAM. Alex was just so positive And if we needed to talk to him, he was always there."

Annette, stage IV melanoma survivor

We have only good things to say about CTOAM.

Alex was just so positive and we enjoyed our phone calls with him because after we talked to him, we were like, "okay we can do this!"

There was always hope after we talked to him – there was always something we could be doing more of. Like, I still drink my pot of green tea every morning. You know, drink your tea, take all your nutraceuticals...there was just always, always something positive.

And it was nice that we could do everything over the phone (and didn’t need to go to an office to see him). We had so many appointments at that point, it was nice to just sit in the comfort of our house and talk to him. He did a powerpoint presentation with us and he really educated us well. So I felt like I had a bit better of a grasp of what was going on.

You know, he just felt really smart to me! He would explain it and then he’d dumb it down and then he’d dumb it down another level and I’m like, "yeah, still don’t get it" and he’s like "okay! Imagine you’re an employee and you’re going into a building and you have a badge to get in…" And I’m like, ‘okay! Now you’re talking! I’m following you now!’ And I have a medical science background even!

So I felt really well educated and I felt empowered by knowing the science behind it. And if we needed to talk to him, he was always there. There was only hope and positive things when we talked to him.

And Raymond had also done a lot of research in the background and felt that Alex was recommending the same sort of things that he’d found in his own research around the medications and things like that. So we didn’t feel like anything was off the wall.

And it was interesting because my dermatologist had said to us, "you need to be the squeaky wheel. If you’re gonna get anything, you need to be the squeaky wheel."

And we were like, "well what do we squeak about? We’re happy to squeak but we don’t know what to squeak about!"

And Alex was the one who directed us, saying "this is what you need to do, this is what you need to get". He also figured out how to get what we needed to get. And so we learned how to be the squeaky wheel.

Because otherwise, how do you know what to do? How do you know you need 10mg of a certain drug instead of 3mg? I wouldn’t have known how to get that treatment. I wouldn’t have known how to get the Klimo referral or even that I needed that treatment in the first place.

Thomas, stage IV lung cancer survivor

"Five days ago I celebrated my 75th birthday...and I want to celebrate my 90th for sure. And you guys are my hope."

Thomas, stage IV lung cancer survivor

There are two main reasons I chose CTOAM. They’re both ‘s’ words: Science and Support.

Your team adds something into the cancer equation that nobody else has, and that is bringing medical science. And there is no other organization or group that I have come across that talks about medical science. And that is the huge addition here.

Another thing is support. The availability of Alex and Michelle - just being able to call them and get the support I need going forward.

So those two things in particular and their determination to get things done. And then looking ahead further from here. You know, I believe that you are prepared to support me to get the job done and get me into remission. I believe that you’ll do whatever it takes. And that if anyone can do it, you can

I'm just really grateful. Because I don't think Korey would still be here if we weren’t involved with CTOAM.

And so those, those kinds of things are my takeaways at this point, and that gives me a lot of confidence and a lot of hope.

I say it even makes me kind of excited about the possibilities going forward, but I hesitate to use the word excitement when I'm talking about cancer.

But I feel hopeful, very hopeful, that you guys are the people who are going to make my life worth living. And, you know, five days ago I celebrated my 75th birthday...and I want to celebrate my 90th for sure. And you guys are my hope.”
