Four reasons why patients need to be cautious about cancer cure claims from ‘cancer celebrities and entrepreneurs:
- Because your life depends upon the truth.
- Cancer entrepreneurs can only promote one size fits all cancer cures.
- Following false cancer cure protocols can waste precious time and money.
- Although many cancer cure stories sound convincing; they may not be able to be medically substantiated.
We created this page to help cancer patients be better informed and discerning regarding 'cancer cure' stories.
Cancer Entrepreneur's claims must be fact checked for your Safety & Longevity:
We strongly suggest that patients fact-check all cancer cure claims. The following cancer entrepreneurs have influenced millions of patients:

Tony Barry, well known Australian TV star, is the narrator of a video that has promoted ‘black salve’ to millions of patients worldwide. Few viewers know he lost his leg to melanoma some years after making the video and is very ill.
Grace Gawler – I have seen horrific outcomes in patients who used black salve – these included health school owners or ‘natural medicine’ doctors. (Hushed up of course) Due to patient confidentiality I cannot give their names.

Esther Hicks aka: the famous Abraham channel, claimed for many decades her method of prayer and ‘higher vibration’ can keep you cancer free.

The sample cases above illustrate how medically un-substantiated cancer cure claims can influence tens of thousands of patients to make poor treatment choices.
Many patients who presented at our clinic had high tumour loads due to following such misinformation.
We estimate the annual deaths in Australia from alternative medicine is in the thousands. See video – No ‘Alternative to Cancer’
