SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Dr Kim, Dr Dai, and Dr Hoppe are an exceptionally caring and kind team, we are so thankful to have been referred to SHC by a friend, after our CTCL Specialist at UCI lost interest in my husband's MF case. The TSEBT treatments were nothing short of a miracle for my husband (and our family!) because they 100% cleared the skin plaque and tumors that had covered 40% of his body. He has been through various treatments, over the past 20+ years of MF, and over $1.2 million in chemo has been infused into his veins. The SHC team and TSEBT treatments have given him back his healthy skin, his health happiness, and his normal (symptom free!) life. Our deepest thanks for this miracle!
