Episode 5: What makes the Oasis of Hope Hospital treatment different from other treatments?

WE DON'T MAKE YOU SICK TO GET YOU WELL!The first thing one notices is that when you visit the hospital at lunch time, there are some pretty enthusiastic stage 4 patients sitting around the lunch tables chatting away like they were having high tea in London. This contrast is pretty large if you visit a traditional chemotherapy or radiation type hospital treatment center. There, you see people who can't get out of bed, have lost their hair, and are so nauseous they can't eat anything. We think you should lose the cancer, not your hair!
