John and Thea Patterson


The Patterson Institute’s founding donors, John and Thea Patterson, personally experienced the role integrative cancer care can play in a patient’s cancer care, when it played a pivotal role in John’s eight-year journey with cancer. That experience led John and Thea to CCNM with an offer to work together to strengthen and expand the integration of cancer care across the country.

Grateful patient: Kathy Hipfner Boucher


“A diagnosis of stage 4 cancer was the impetus for my seeking out a naturopathic doctor. I have continually surpassed the expectations of my oncology team. I withstood an aggressive chemotherapy regimen remarkably well, due to the effects of integrated, evidence-based treatments that included high-dose intravenous Vitamin C. In fact, I was able to ride my bike to the chemotherapy throughout five months of treatment."
