ARE YOU LOST IN THE COMPLEX & BEWILDERING MODERN CANCER MAZE?
I’ve helped many patients lost in complex cancer mazes. e.g. the medical maze, alternative medicine maze, nutritional & supplement maze, conventional treatment maze, emotional maze & immune therapies maze.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN ALTERNATIVE?
Although we don’t endorse alternative medicine; we do offer access to state-of-the-art medical & scientifically validated alternatives. For example – genomic diagnostic testing, safe cell-based immune therapies, proton beam therapy, cyber-knife and more.
Defining Our New Culture of Cancer Survivorship:
We provide Boutique Cancer Advisory & Navigation Services for patients seeking life-extending treatments overseas.
Background: Grace Gawler has made it her life mission to create a bespoke personalised cancer care & navigation service.
During her 43 years in the field, Grace has seen patient-focused care replaced by modern assembly-line cancer medicine. With this in mind, our Survive & Thrive Cancer Navigation Packages are specifically designed to help patients who have fallen through the gaps in the ‘corporate’ medical model.
Fees charged for the navigation package are subsidised by donations to our not for profit; enabling a dedicated boutique service that is affordable.
“Overseas treatments – my life-saving experience(s).” Grace Gawler
I’ve had 6 life-extending surgeries in the Netherlands & Singapore. Every time I refer a patient for treatments overseas, I can relate to them from my own experience.
Notably, I was discouraged by many Australian specialists when I chose to undergo a world first experimental surgery in The Netherlands (2002/3). It is still not available in Australia. Had I not taken that risk I would not be alive today.
One-Stop-Survivorship-Shop: If you are newly diagnosed or a long-term patient, we have the breadth & depth of experience to help you.
Via our international medical alliance we help you access state of the art treatments & guide you through the whole process.
Introducing your Personal Cancer Navigator, Grace Gawler:
A cancer navigator is entrusted with your life. They must have credibility, qualifications, experience and longevity assisting cancer patients in navigating the cancer maze. By now you’ll know I have 4+ decades of multi-disciplinary cancer experience. Using the model I developed, I guide, monitor & manage patients helping them to develop a personalised survivor-ship care plan.
Survivorship: Our aim is to help patients become long term survivors. Survivorship may not always be about finding a cure, although some of my patients do. For many my role is to help them manage their cancer as a long-term chronic disease. This is the new & realistic approach to treating cancer.
Background: In the early 80s, I co-founded the first breast cancer support groups in Australia & pioneered residential programs for cancer patients. For 22 years I was a caregiver to a cancer amputee. Later I was co-founder/director of 2 cancer charities, international speaker & author of 4 cancer related books. A solid background in veterinary surgical work led on to training qualifications with distinctions in nutrition, herbal medicine, & naturopathy. This was followed by courses in counselling, Ericksonian hypnotherapy, psycho-oncology, Rubenfeld Synergy (USA) and more… More about my background – click here
Our care plan helps to bridge gaps in the medical system.
These gaps may impact some patients – for example…
A.) Medical errors – 3rd leading cause of death in U.S – similar in AU & NZ. Johns Hopkins Study.
B.) AU & NZ ranked near last to receive new medicines already approved overseas. Medicine Australia.
C.) Misdiagnosis – more than 50% of patients presenting to us were misdiagnosed.
Boutique Solutions: Small is better. Our boutique service sees each patient personally supervised by experienced cancer navigator (Grace Gawler). This approach minimises risk of problems such as above.
