Stacy Eckel is a resident of Miami, FL and had a weight-loss surgery back in January 2013. 12 years prior her surgery, Stacy was severely overweight and has been struggling to find ways on how to lose weight. She has been declined by several insurance companies of assistance stating that she does not qualify to their insurance standards because she was healthy despite her being overweight. A nurse in a clinic, she was referred to, suggested her to go to Mexico to do the surgery but like any other first-timers, Stacy was skeptic of the idea of traveling overseas and have herself treated in a different country. After a much comprehensive research online, she was finally determined to go to Mexico and get the procedure done. Find out more of her actual experiences before and after the surgery and how it has drastically changed her appearance and her life in general.

The Onwards Medical Breakthrough
“Quadrapeutics’ works in preclinical study of hard-to-treat tumors
“The first preclinical study of a new Rice University-developed anti-cancer technology found that a novel combination of existing clinical treatments can instantaneously detect and kill only cancer cells—often by blowing them apart—without harming surrounding normal organs. The research, which is available online this week Nature Medicine, reports that Rice’s “quadrapeutics” technology was 17 times more efficient than conventional chemoradiation therapy against aggressive, drug-resistant head and neck tumors.”
“We address aggressive cancers that cannot be efficiently and safely treated today,” said Rice scientist Dmitri Lapotko, the study’s lead investigator. “Surgeons often cannot fully remove tumors that are intertwined with important organs. Chemotherapy and radiation are commonly used to treat the residual portions of these tumors, but some tumors become resistant to chemoradiation. Quadrapeutics steps up when standard treatments fail. At the same time, quadrapeutics complements current approaches instead of replacing them.”
