Mistletoe Clinical Trial Phase 1 & 2!

$334,852 of $1.3M goal

Raised by 288 people in 40 months
Ivelisse Page   REISTERSTOWN, MD
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 today,  years later, remain 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 fear


We 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.

We just got word from an anonymous donor, who heard we got FDA approval, that they will match any gift given today through midnight tomorrow, December 31st up to $30,000!
This is HUGE!!! Please help us! How amazing would it be to have gotten the FDA's approval to proceed with the mistletoe clinical trial and ALSO be fully funded! We can do this!
No gift is too big or too small! Your gift has a greater impact by being doubled! By giving $50, it becomes $100. By giving $1,000, it becomes $2,000, etc. Please consider giving and sharing with friends. Our goal is $167,000, not including the cost to continue treatment for those who are responding well; we believe all! It's time to Kiss Cancer Goodbye! EVERY donation is tax-deductible and 100% of every donation allocated to the mistletoe clinical trial will go to the trial!
Thank you for Believing Big with us and Happy New Year!

We wanted you to be one of the first to know that the FDA JUST gave us the APPROVAL to proceed with phase 1 of the IV mistletoe clinical trial!!!!!!!

This is HUGE!!!! You should have heard the "Woo Hoo's" and seen the fist bumps and celebration when we got the news! This is a tremendous WIN for us and for ALL the cancer patients who will benefit from the IV mistletoe therapy!
We have truly experienced God's favor and have witnessed what I would consider a miracle! Thank you for your prayers; God has answered them!
Now that we have gotten approval to begin from the FDA, we could REALLY use your help! Can you help us spread the word? Can you SHARE with your friends on social media, blogs, those you know with resources or influence of our need to raise the remaining amount to complete the trial?
We have raised over $332,000 of the $500,000 needed for phase 1. The FDA would also like for those patients who have responded well (we believe all) to continue treatment past our phase 1 time frame. That means we may need to raise an additional $500,000.
EVERY donation made on this page is tax-deductible and 100% of every dollar will go towards the mistletoe clinical trial!
I BELIEVE BIG that with your help, we will Kiss Cancer Goodbye!

EXCITING NEWS!!!
The 1500 page mistletoe clinical trial documentation was just submitted to FDA today!!! They have 30 days to make any revisions and pray that there aren't so that we can begin the trial in January!!!! Now that it is beginning, it is vital that we raise the remaining funds to complete phase 1 of the trial. We only need $169,000 to complete phase 1!
Can you help us spread the word by sharing this page? We are on the brink of changing the way cancer is thought of and treated in the USA! We can do this together with your help!

Hello! See my smiling face??? See my husband's? We live to our fullest every moment, and we're loving life! Thanks to Dr. Peter Hinderberger and my cooperative oncologist, my treatments for Hodgkins lymphoma were minimally discomforting. When I received my oncologist's diagnosis, I called Peter, and he asked if I could immediately come to see him. I did. He explained that unlike some other cancers, he could not cure Hodgkins using natural means but he COULD help keep my immune system humming along so that the effects of the chemotherapy, the only known cure for Hodgkins, would be minimized. And minimized they WERE!!! So much so that my oncologist, Dr. Peter Ledakis at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD, was intrigued enough with my lack of harsh symptoms that he inquired about what I was doing to remain so well. I referred him to Peter Hinderberger, they talked, and the rest is history; they now have a collaborative relationship helping patients survive and some, like me, to THRIVE, during treatments for cancer!!! Using mistletoe injections kept my discomfort at bay as I took 4 rounds - 8 infusions - of very toxic chemicals to kill my cancer. I know for sure, judging by other patents' misery when taking the same protocol, that the mistletoe was responsible for my comfort during that long period, and I am extremely - and eternally - grateful to these two incredible docs for saving my life and minimizing my discomfort.

I am a patient at the Ruscumbe Mansion. I was diagnosed with stage 3C Her2 + breast cancer in August 05. My prognosis was not good! My Doctor started me on mistletoe during my treatment which was 1 1/2 years. I am still a patient of Dr. Peter Hinderburger and referred many people to him. My oncologist approved of everything that he had recommended during my traditional treatment. In my opinion I feel that getting traditional treatment hand in hand with alternative treatment changed my prognosis. I am so happy that you are giving mistletoe a voice and a platform. This kind of information needs to be shared.

After being diagnosed with cancer this April, I had to have surgery; however, my doctor said the cancer can come back anytime. I heard about mistletoe therapy from a friend, then researched online. It was not easy to find doctor and pharmacy here in the U.S. that supplies mistletoe injections but I was determined and successful. I've been using mistletoe injections for couple months now and my immune system is slowly waking up. It started to show the reaction at 5 mg. It is amazing to see transformation inside me to be healthier and more energetic, and cancer free. I hope more people in the U.S. will realize the importance to "think outside the box" and go after more holistic approaches in conjunction with conventional therapies. I also pray for safety of those doctors who make it happen here in the U.S. despite on war from big pharma.
