Following the consultation you have the option to become a ‘navigated’ patient by joining our Survive & Thrive Cancer Navigation Plan. 

The plan is your blueprint for effectively navigating the complex cancer maze.

We believe every cancer patient deserves a chance to extend their life with high level wellbeing.

We specialise in helping patients access hi-tech overseas treatments. This is especially helpful for those with rare or difficult to treat cancers or those given a poor prognosis at first diagnosis.

Expert Second Opinion: Of course we can assist newly diagnosed patients seeking a second opinion. In fact; early in diagnosis, there may be an advantage in exploring minimally invasive value-add treatments, not available in Australia or New Zealand.

Knowing about valid and well researched treatments, can assist with creating your long term health restoration plan. Importantly, having a plan to work from throughout your cancer journey can provide patients with psychological peace of mind and less stress.

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. Some patients has experienced DNA repair & restoration after these very safe but potent treatments. Most patients look and feel better almost immediately, with follow up blood tests verifying improvements to their immune system.
