We recognise that many patients like you are lost in the cancer maze. E.G. the conventional & alternative medicine maze, nutritional & supplement maze, emotional maze etc. We understand your desire for minimally-invasive treatments & quality well-being through the cancer journey.


As an independent organisation, we can offer patients with rare & difficult to treat cancers access to state-of-the-art medical treatments & diagnostics. E.G. genomic diagnostics, safe cell-based immune therapies, proton beam therapy, cyber-knife etc.

Did you know that your cancer is unique? Assisted by our medical colleagues we help you discover your cancer's genetic fingerprint. Our 5-point survivorship care plan is personalised at every level. Here's how we do it...

1. Genomic & DNA Cancer Testing

Scientific 2nd opinion using multi-gene panels cancer analysis for precise detection of targeted treatments. More

2. Targeted Treatments (based on the tests)

Referrals for targeted treatments (overseas) Some medicines can be imported by our oncologists. More

3. DNA based Nutrition & Exercise Plans

DNA tests eliminate Google guesswork. Plans are designed to work with your inherited genetics, not against. More

4. Cell-based Immune Therapies

Referrals to the pioneer of cell-based immune therapies (overseas) with excellent outcomes. More

5. Coordination, Guidance & Support 

18,000+ patients have received effective support during our founder’s 44 years of cancer service. More

Cancer Treatments without Borders
Implementing the 5-point survivorship care plan

After genomic testing we routinely find 50-60% of patients were misdiagnosed. The tests reveal target treatments, often not available in AU & NZ hospitals. We can refer patients for treatment overseas, or; with their oncologist’s support, we’ll help them import an approved medicine not yet obtainable here.

Cancer treatments differ globally. E.G. There are no Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) centres in AU & NZ. (used in USA, Germany, Japan for 30+ yrs). PBT delivers accurate radiation with few side effects – ideal for brain, head & neck cancers & many others.

Immune Therapies: We refer most of our patients for cell-based immune therapies with amazing outcomes. (point 4 above). e.g. DNA repair & restoration often occurs after these very safe but potent treatments. Patients look and feel better almost immediately.     

Participants in our navigation services can access some of the leading centres in cancer medicine to help you get the right diagnosis & treatment  Our role is to refer, organise, coordinate, advise & support you through the whole process.

We refer patients to some of the best minds in cancer medicine. Thus, a cancer deemed un-treatable in AU & NZ, may be treatable, even curable in a respected hospital overseas.
