The Believe Big 2014 Dinner was a great success thanks to many of you! Funds from the dinner along with past contributions totaling $302,000 will allow Believe Big to move forward with the funding of the 1st phase of the Mistletoe Clinical Trial in collaboration with Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Phase 1 will now begin within the next few months and phase 2 is already in development. Please continue to share, give and promote as phase 2 is estimated to cost about 1 million dollars.
Attached is a video segment from our dinner where Dr. Luis Diaz and Dr. Channing Paller from Johns Hopkins share about the importance of this clinical trial.
Thank you again and have a blessed day!
DR. Diaz speaks at Believe Big Dinner
My name is Ivelisse Page and I am the chairman and co-founder of Believe Big
. I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2008. Statistically, I had a less than 8% chance of survival and yet, here I am four years later, completely cancer free!
After facing, fighting and overcoming cancer, I am compelled to reach out to patients facing similar challenges that I encountered in my fight against cancer. Even though my husband had spent over 20 years in the wellness industry, we found it extremely difficult to find reliable resources to heal the whole person, particularly as it related to cancer. We established Believe Big in 2011 to help families navigate their own cancer journey by providing the tools and resources they need to advocate for their own health.
Believe Big provides a wealth of current cancer-fighting information in one place. Patients and families can download several helpful resources including:
1. First Steps to take when first diagnosed
2. Key questions to ask oncologists
3. A nationwide directory of Naturopathic Experts who are trained to boost immune function.
4. Resources to assist patients in becoming their own advocate
5. How to win the mental war and eliminate fearWe are NOW in the beginning stages of developing a Mistletoe Clinical Trial in collaboration with Johns Hopkins Hospital
! This trial is a huge step forward because it brings the conventional and complimentary medical communities together. At Believe Big, we have seen tremendous benefits of Mistletoe Treatment with ALL types of cancer!
Mistletoe treatment is used widely in Germany and Switzerland and until a clinical trial is done here in the United States, it can not be offered as standard of care. You have the opportunity to help us fund this ground breaking trial and make it available to patients here!
Because Mistletoe is a natural substance and there is not a patent possibility, pharmaceutical companies will not fund this trial. Therefore all funding will need to be through philanthropic and private donations. As one of the researchers shared, "this trial is exciting because it has the potential to change the way cancer is thought of and treated."
We have lost too many sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers to cancer. Will you help us in our fight to fund this trial and help to save many lives? Any and all donations are appreciated and are tax deductible.
