What is a Cancer Navigator?

An experienced cancer navigator engages with each patient to attain a comprehensive overview of their unique cancer history in order to provide a dedicated & personalised approach to their cancer treatment & management. 

To be effective; your navigator must have longevity in the field and be multi skilled across a broad range of supportive care cancer disciplines.Your navigator provides personal guidance as you move through the cancer maze – empowering you to make informed decisions thus improving your cancer outcome.

Our cancer navigator is similar to a conductor of an orchestra with many responsibilities; coordinating instruments, musicians, music, timing, sequencing –  ensuring the overall harmony of the symphony ‘team’.

Similarly; our navigator coordinates the patient’s ‘orchestra’ – the support ‘team’ of oncologists, doctors, immune therapies, treatment centres, genomic diagnostic labs, scans, nutritional & complementary medicines & more…

What uniquely qualifies us to offer this service:

  • Grace Gawler’s 30 year’s experience in overseas referrals.Cancer Navigation Package
  • As well, she acquired an in-depth understanding of what overseas treatments entail, when she underwent successful experimental surgery in the Netherlands, in 2002-03.
  • Grace has worked internationally in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, Germany and Japan and maintains many collegiate relationships with exceptional cancer health professionals from these countries.
  • Working with some of the best minds in cancer medicine gives Grace a global yardstick for excellence; she insists on nothing less for her patients.
  • Overall, Grace has spent 43 years working at the cancer coalface with approximately 18,000 + patients.

Point of Difference:

  • Unlike many referral services, we have no financial links with health professionals, clinics, hospitals or other service providers that we refer to.
  • We therefore have no bias as to where we refer patients – each case is taken on the specific needs of the individual.
  • Continuity of care and in-depth therapeutic relationship with each patient.
  • Extensive experience in the psychological and emotional aspects of dealing with cancer. (Books and publications on subject)

Is the navigation package right for you?

Note: the navigation service is not a mix & match arrangement designed by you the patient, with occasional checking in with your navigator.

For best outcomes a close ongoing relationship between navigator and patient is required.

Whilst we encourage patient empowerment, we consistently observe patients attempting to ‘research’ and flit from one treatment to another – getting lost and confused in the cancer maze.

This is how we work.

All recommended treatments must be coordinated, timed & sequenced in accordance with our referring doctors recommendations & in collaboration with your cancer navigator, Grace Gawler.

Responsibility:

  • We take every care with each patient based on four decades of experience.
  • We are diligent with professionalism & thoroughness.
  • We take our responsibility seriously.
  • We want you to obtain the best possible outcomes.

Testimonials:

Ben – Brain Tumour Glioblastoma IV Wildtype –  Diagnosed – 3/6/17 – provided 23/10/17

My wife and I were directed to Grace by another patient. This patient was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given six months to live. This was 5 years ago! I was diagnosed with a grade IV Glioblastoma and with so many things happening medically it was an extremely stressful time. We purchased the Cancer Navigation (NAV) package and the very next day had a Skype session with Grace.

Prior to speaking with Grace, we had been told that there was no cure and treatment was limited to radiation and chemotherapy. The first thing that stood out for us was Grace’s knowledge. Speaking to her for the first time was exciting as we realised there was hope.

Greg’s wife Claire – “Greg was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Australia’s medical system gave us no hope.

We were lucky enough to have Grace recommended to us and within 3 weeks of Greg’s diagnosis we were in Japan.

This was daunting and it was not a small decision to make, but we felt it was the right one and we had nothing to lose.
