CANCER TREATMENT IN TURKEY TESTIMONIALS
Sofia: "I want to share my experience with the Liv Clinic. In 2016, I was treated there for breast cancer. Lumpectomy cost me about $10,000, but I also received radiotherapy. I’m very happy that I managed to keep my breasts, as it was very important for me. Thanks to the doctor, everything was done very delicately. I’ve been feeling fine for two years now, and my tests are normal. Of course, I can never forget these events, but my hope is that everything is over now. I recommend Liv Clinic. Except for some problems with the interpreter (whom I changed as a result), there were no significant disadvantages”.

TREATMENT IN TURKEY TESTIMONIALS
Olga: "My name is Olya. I’m 34, my husband is 39. For three years we’ve been unsuccessfully trying for a baby. In the end, we decided to stop torturing ourselves and try IVF. I liked the option of going to Turkey right away because a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere was very important for me. And the price was almost the same as if we chose a popular center in Kyiv. We decided to stay at the Medicana Clinic. There our attending physician was Dr. Laçin. Fortunately, everything worked out in the first attempt!!! I got pregnant, and now my husband and I have two healthy daughters. You should never lose hope, especially since many problems are solvable today and not even for an astronomical sum. Kids for everyone!”
