This is a horrible disease and one that urgently needs a new research approach. When you consider the current treatments for this disease, you realize how horrific the current approach is. Presently they are trying every type of Chemotherapy they have, and are basically “just giving them a go” – this is not science. This is a business model to generate income for the Pharmaceutical Companies and the Researchers.
The Patients are very young – in most cases less than 6 years of age – and they are being hit with the most aggressive and toxic Drugs on the market. They have virtually every toxic drug thrown at them – each of which have no proven benefit in prognosis or quality of life. We had one mother tell us that by the time the doctors had finished with the treatments, she could not physically recognize her own daughter – these drugs had disfigured her so much and had no benefit at all.
Our approach is different - very different - as our Product produces no side effects at all. We have shown that we can reduce the tumor, and most importantly we increase the life expectancy and quality of life of the children.
Our first DIPG patient has been with us for over 8 years and is well, and although she has some problems because of the Radiation given when she was first diagnosed, she is going to school, living an active life, and get stronger every day. She was given a prognosis of 6 weeks to 9 months to live – and that was 8 years ago. Remember, less than 1% live 5 years past diagnosis, and this little girl is beating those odds with no treatment other than our Product for the last 8 years.
These results are unheard of in the DIPG field, and this is why we need to make this treatment option available to other Patients. With zero side effects, proven results, and increased quality of life, more research on this treatment could change the course of the DIPG disease and help the thousands of children dying every year.
Until now, there was no help, or hope, for these kids. This is truly ground-breaking research we are doing and with continued success, this could be a massive breakthrough – not only with DIPG, but in every other form of Cancer Treatment.
