Her depth of knowledge, broad experience base, compassionate character, plus her intellectually curious & rigorous nature; make her an anomaly in the field.
Judith – Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer – mastectomy
In April 2021, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. To say I was shocked is an understatement. I was convinced that my healthy, vegan lifestyle of many years would protect me from cancer. I was able to make arrangements for a mastectomy but that was about all. I had no idea what to expect after the operation and no idea of how to go about choosing an oncologist.

How our Survivorship Care Plans can help you
Recurrent TNBC (Triple Negative Breast Cancer) BRCA2 mutation
Alison – NSW – Diagnosed 2016 – double mastectomy – various chemotherapies and radiotherapy – Became a Navigated Patient in Sept 2020
Recurrent TNBC with a BRCA2 mutation was a confronting diagnosis and the standard treatments for TNBC patients did not work for me. Searching for alternative treatments on the internet and elsewhere wasted my time, energy and money.
But instead of giving up hope and living the rest of my life in fear, fortunately I found Grace Gawler !
With decades of experience and a vast knowledge of treatments in Australia and internationally, Grace sorts fact from fiction and leaves no stone unturned to find evidenced-based therapies for me.
