PATIENT ADVOCACY:

We act as your advocate and can attend oncology consultations with you or prepare questions for you to ask – the questions you may not ask – we help you gain more from the oncology consultation than you could do alone.
We de-brief with you afterwards to make sure you understand the consultation enabling you to make informed decisions.

Research Advocate: We research innovative treatments on your behalf, Because our national and international oncology and research networks are vast, we often find treatment solutions to patients told there is ‘nothing more we can do.’
We make hospital visits to make sure everything is flowing properly and we ‘negotiate/advocate’ on your behalf.


PREVENTION:

This exciting field is expanding rapidly – especially important for over 50s
Our new understanding of genetics enables us to correct or ‘neutralize’ onco-genetic pre-cursors before they become cancerous.

You benefit from Grace’s 30-yrs naturopathic & herbal medicine – specialising in cancer


FOR THE COURAGEOUS:

Psycho-Oncology – our experience shows patients can make valuable gains in this field (psychological/emotional) work – often neglected by many patients.
We (and many of our medical colleagues) believe that Psycho-Oncology can be 50% of the cancer healing effect
Psycho-Oncology is like sports psychology – used by all top athletes
We offer resilience & survivorship programs that help you succeed – (this is more than just being positive)
