(NaturalNews) If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, you may want to get a second opinion before agreeing to proceed with treatment, especially if you plan to opt for a conventional chemotherapy or radiation protocol. A Houston-area woman recently learned this the hard way after agreeing to undergo eight rounds of chemotherapy treatment over the course of seven months, only to learn in the end that she never even had cancer in the first place.

Herlinda Garcia, a 54-year-old woman from Victoria, Texas, is still reeling with bouts of anxiety and depression as a result of her misdiagnosis, which conventional chemoQuack doctors insisted was stage four terminal breast cancer. As it turned out, a chemoQuack by the name of Dr. Ahmad Qadri misread Garcia's lab results, which ultimately sent her down the miserable road of being chemically poisoned and having her health destroyed by chemotherapy.

As reported by in Houston, Garcia was misdiagnosed with breast cancer not long after having a benign tumor removed from her left breast. The part-time civil process worker was devastated by the news, but rather than seek a second opinion, she proceeded to sell most of her belongings and begin regular chemotherapy treatments. She also created a "bucket list" of activities and goals she wanted to achieve before dying.

"When you're told you have stage four terminal cancer, that's it," Garcia is quoted as saying to "I put trust in the doctor."

This is, of course, to be expected, as the population at large has been trained to trust what their doctors say without looking into the matter themselves, or bothering to seek third-party advice. And while Garcia is obviously not to be blamed for her misdiagnosis -- who would ever conceive that it might be possible to receive a false terminal illness diagnosis? -- her experience serves as an example to others about the fallibility of the conventional medicine model.

"Everything was swollen," recalls Garcia about how the needless chemotherapy treatments destroyed her health. "I lost my eyebrows, my eyelashes. It's really hard. I can't explain how I felt. It's like I was in a dream. I wanted to give up on everything."

Worse than cancer: Chemotherapy for nonexistent condition caused lasting damage

When Garcia was later admitted to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston due to perpetual anxiety and depression symptoms, initial scans revealed that she did not actually have breast cancer. And further investigation confirmed her worst nightmare -- Garcia never had breast cancer at all, and Dr. Qadri, who is now dead, had made a huge mistake with her diagnosis.

"I was happy, but at the same time, I had that anger," recalls Garcia about how she felt upon learning the news. "The damage had been done."

Not surprisingly, Garcia sued for damages and won. But a Victoria County court awarded her a measly $367,500 in damages, according to, which is hardly an adequate remedy to cover both the costs of her treatments and the lasting pain and suffering she has endured. If she could do it all over again, Garcia would have immediately sought a second opinion so as to avoid the horrors she endured.

"I know I'm never going to feel the same because of what I went through," added Garcia to reporters. "It changed my life ... I don't wish this on anybody."
