Jeffrey Deslandes achieved a remarkable recovery from stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma using little-known cancer vaccines. He wrote a book about his experience - From Cancer Good Things Grow.
Grace Gawler, cancer navigator and patient advocate, with 42 years experience wrote the foreword to Jeffrey's book.
Grace includes among her many services, helping patients access the highly effective cancer vaccinations via our global medical alliance.
Read on for Jeffrey's story and to see if the vaccines are applicable to your cancer.
Jeffrey Deslandes survived NHL thanks to cancer vaccines
Inspiring Book: When somebody survives cancer against all odds; there is a great story to be told - especially if it is genuine.
When traditional treatments & harsh side effects failed to arrest his disease, Jeffrey searched for emerging therapies.
He learned of a new medical treatment where it was feasible to grow a personalised vaccine from his own cancer, which would harness his immune system.
Although unproven, Jeffrey made the bold decision to choose his treatment rather than an autologous stem cell transplant recommended by his highly trained lymphoma specialist.
Jeffrey's progress from that day almost 12 years ago has been remarkable.
Grace has helped 20,000 patients navigate the cancer maze
Exploring more effective ways to help cancer patients restore their health, Grace Gawler began searching outside the box.
Her early days in veterinary medicine and research helped her evaluate the new cancer treatments she found .
Beginning in the 1980's, Grace referred patients to overseas cancer clinics when treatments were not available at home.
Over the years Grace built a global medical alliance of exceptional cancer doctors where patients can get newer treatments.
Since 2014, Grace has helped patients access cancer vaccines similar, to those used by Jeffrey.
For many patients the outcomes have been outstanding.
Every cancer patient needs a personal navigator & advocate
Coordinating & sequencing (timing is critical) overseas cancer treatments such as autologous vaccines, is a complex skill.
Drawing upon more than four decades in this role, Grace Gawler, on behalf of patients, communicates & with practitioners in her global medical alliance.
Patients from Australia and New Zealand, when appropriate, are typically referred to clinics in Singapore & Japan.
Patients from Europe, the UK and Ireland, are often referred to our alliance practitioners based in Germany.
We hope you have a better understanding of the role played by the cancer navigator/advocate helping patients access and manage emerging cancer treatments.
Note - Jeffrey who had many cancer vaccine injections over nine years, is now approaching 12 years disease-free.
Cancer Vaccine Improvements: In 2017, medical advances have shortened the vaccine time-frame to 3 weeks for most patients.
Plus - the treatment has minimal side-effects - unlike many chemotherapies or drug-based immune therapies.

Jeffrey Deslandes launching his book in Melbourne, 2017.
All book proceeds go to the Grace Gawler Institute, a health promotion Cancer Charity, to help others learn about and access the vaccines.
Grace Gawler, the Institute's therapeutic director, wrote the foreword to Jeffrey's book and gave a short speech at Jeffrey's book launch in Melbourne, May 2017.
Today, the Grace Gawler Institute, helps cancer patients access the new versions of the vaccines via our cancer navigation service.
The improved vaccines are not available in Australia but can be accessed in Asia. Since we provided this service, beginning three years ago, like Jeffrey, many patients have experienced remarkable outcomes.
